Default help.... books to send

What are the rules for sending books. How many at a time, AI understand they must come from the book store but a BIBLE came back from Barnes and Noble? I understand no bubble packing, But do these book stores know the shipping rules for each prison? And is there a special rule for reception prisoners?
Someone please help me my son is in there and has nothing to do and that's what I worry about.

Not sure how many can be sent at a time but It has to be soft cover. I even sent my Bible that I had used. I went to the Bible store were I bought it and had them send it out and they knew it was going to a prison. I've also sent a book from Amazon with no problems, took a while to get to him but he did get the book. I wish I could help with ur other questions

That's really weird about the bible being sent back. Are you sure it came from Barne & Noble? If you order from their website you can also be buying from some random seller...kinda like you do on Ebay, but those come from a person, like from a home address so those will get sent back.I did exactly that and he never got the books.

Also,I've had them reject books because of the kinds they were. I tried to send Nikki Sixx The Heroin Diary's and an Enimen book and they were both rejected due to the content ( drugs). The worst part is they never sent them back so I lost the money on a total on 4 books. You can call the prison's mailroom and ask if a book is on the "no" list. I've been meaning to do this to see if I could send a Maxim subscription but I just hate calling that damn place,lol.

Hmm maybe they're right then. What I'm thinking is its okay if it comes from Amazon and not just some third party vendor that sells on there. That's how I'm going to do it. I'll send one or two and keep my fingers crossed lol.

I'd make sure you have sent his quarterly package before you send a CD from Amazon, there was an occurance that someone once sent my man a CD to be nice....they counted it as a package, thus he didn't qualify for his package that quarter :/

Hi,
I just received fiance's Rx for his glasses. I was wondering can I order the glasses out here and have the company send them directly to him? Not sure what to do... Has anyone had this problem?

I wanted to do the same thing but also didn't know what the process was going to be. Please let us know if and how you were able to get the glasses to him...

I finally got an answer in regards to glasses.he needs to go to Medical and tell them that someone in the outside will be purchasing his prescription on the outside they will give him the paperwork to mail to me from there I'm free to order from anywhere as long as it's shipped directly to him.not to mention that they have to be plastic and what not.

I know itís a special order and as far as I understand it has to be through an approved vender because it has to be clear see-through. But keep in mind that depending were he is at they are allowed a certain amount of packages a year. I wanted to surprise me LO with a fan two years ago but because he is allowed 1 package every quarter, I cost him his package. So much for the surprise. He was really, really cool about and loved it during summer but I try not to surprise him any more J good luck and hope youíre able to get him his player.

okay ladies, i thought i'd give you a heads up on the jpay mp3 players and the video visitation in case someone was wondering. i talked to a rep. at jpay and was told that kern state does NOT allow the mp3 players. the prison also does NOT have video visitation. she said the only thing jpay has for CA. prisons is a way to send money to the inmates.well that sucks huh? i shoulda known the state of ca. would not allow them !
