I called Hill. Inmates can receive hardcover books by mail only if they are purchased through and sent directly from a retailer, i.e. amazon, B&N, Wal-Mart, etc. Hardcover books from home can be brought to the facility on a visit but any sleeves must be removed.
The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. -- Psalm 34:18

 :wc72: I just happened to see this topic on here right now...So I thought I would add info about Stateville: They no longer allow hardcover books. This began in mid 2015 as I had been allowed to bring him hardcovers up until then. He's been transferred to Menard now....Hoping they do allow them.
