TIPS: Inmates have requested a variety of books, including novels, non-fiction, magazines, puzzle books (crosswords, mahjong, etc), and poetry. Try to send things that are compelling and entertaining. Jail can be incredibly boring. We are working to coordinate specific requests from inmates at a later date. We will keep you posted.
