Bumping this up for you since I know incoming mail is important for inmates.

I'm glad they'll let you send books to him.  The correctional facilities in my state don't allow that.

Patterson books end up in the library sale quite a bit here, so I'll keep an eye out for that specific book.

Sorry, Kaila, I don't think that's allowed according to the Book Bazaar rules.


(5) No swapping books-for-books unless the swap is between two "Boxers" (Boxers = subscribers to Box-O-Books). For example, posting "I will send you this book if you will send me that book" or "I will send any three books from my bookshelf for this one book I want" is not permitted unless both members are Boxers. If you are a Boxer, why not peek into other Boxers' bookshelves from the Box-O-Books area to see if books you want are available? You can save a lot of postage and credits this way!

Hi,  I'll also keep an eye out for the book. I am anyway since I'm trying to get the entire set . My son is in jail down here, catty-corner from yours. I can't send him books. They have to come from the publisher. So good luck. And hang in there. The time does go by.

You could also try the RAOK board.  smiley  Lots of people have been able to get copies of books for schools, friends, or family that way.
