Default List of banned books for inmates in TDCJ

Does anyone know where I can find a list of the banned books for inmates. My son was denied some books and I would like to be able to find a list. If anyone knows, please let me know. I'm sure others have the same question.

I called the unit my husband is on (Jasper) and asked them for a copy of the list of banned books and magazines. I haven't recieved it yet. I know they hesitate to send out the list of magazines, because it depends on what is in the issue. My husband didn't get one of his READER'S DIGEST because it supposedly had an inappropriate article in it. I can't imagine what could have possibly been in Reader's Digest that could have been considered a security threat? If you do manage to get a copy of the list of prohibited books, I would love to have one also. Please! Thanks.

karengrovo, let us know if you get that list...I never thought they would send it out. I know they look each author/title up on computer...but a hard copy would be convenient for us.

What I do is go to the book store, pick out his books and before I check out I call the unit mail room and have them check to see if they will be approved. Hasn't failed me yet and he seems to get his books faster, I don't know why.
