You can use the major booksellers like Barnes and Noble and Amazon. With Amazon, make sure you request a gift receipt as they no longer include a packing slip and some mail rooms reject without it. Also, make sure it comes from an Amazon warehouse and not a third party seller.

Thumbs up book

my bf is currently at avenal state prison, i used to order through amazon 3 books cost me $32. then i ordered from thriftbooks it cost me $17 for 5 books . i now only order books from them
they have a rewards program when you have spent $50 you receive $5 credit, when you download app they give you %20 off your order, thrift deals books are $3.79 each the more you buy the cheaper it is 4 books for $12 , they constantly have flash sales for %20 off coupons , standard shipping is 99 cents a book and on orders over $10 free ( it has only taken 5 days to get to the prison)
