Sending Books to Inmates
Some approved Internet vendors, such as Amazon.com, allow private individuals and other vendors to directly sell publications on their websites. That individual or vendor, not the approved Internet vendor, then mails out the publication. In such cases, inmates are allowed to receive the publication only if the vendor actually selling and mailing the publication is identified as an approved Internet vendor. Inmates are not allowed to receive the publication if sold and/or mailed by a private individual.
