Things get going around eight.
A note from Books Through Bars:

We are always looking for new books and used books in good condition on the following:

  • African-American history, especially 20th century
  • Native American history
  • Latin American history
  • Radical politics
  • Social sciences and psychology
  • Dictionaries, thesauruses, and Spanish-English dictionaries
  • Learning world languages
  • How-to (drawing, chess, sign language…)
  • Mayan and Aztec history
  • Memoirs and fiction by people of color
  • Mythology
  • Poetry anthologies

With few exceptions, we want only paperbacks since most prisons do not accept hardcover books, and they are expensive to mail.

We do not take: religious books, including Bibles; legal books (except legal dictionaries); old magazines (besides National Geographic); white supremacist literature or anything advocating racial animosity, sexism or homophobia; business books; encyclopedias; mass market fiction (such as Danielle Steele and Stephen King).
