I think its best to try asking someone within the prison.
Ive received mixed info as well. I use musicbymail.com but then was advised on here that musicbymail is not accepted anymore. However, he was still receiving the CD's I sent from there.

Amazon is always out, as well as any third party vendors (so, someone reselling on a site like Amazon, B&N, etc). Other than that, it's hit and miss. You best bet is to call the mail room for your prison and ask them.

I tried Amazon, got returned. Went through Powell’s and it says it was delivered on the 5th but I haven’t heard if he has received the book yet. He is at Eyman. I will let y’all know when I find out for sure!

I've sent my friend a lot of books but to be safe I've always used Amazon. He's in Camp Verde. I called them a few months back and specifically asked about Abebooks.com and they said he would get it. Hope that helps

That’s interesting. I’ve always heard Amazon isn’t allowed.

It isn't. Since Amazon has so many 3rd party sellers, it's too much work on DOC's end to check to make sure it came from a trusted sources, so they just blanked banned. But since it's a jail, not a prison that probably makes the difference. Counties will have different regulations than state, or federal.
