Freaking out
« on: September 12, 2017, 06:43:18 PM »
My LO gave me a list of 100 books you should read to send them and I've been sending them one by one.  I send them from Amazon so he always gets them the day they're delivered or the next day.  The last one I sent got there the sixth and I just looked it up and found out it's about two guys on a road trip where they do a lot of drugs.  I never would have sent it if I knew.  Am I going to be banned from contact with him now?  Will they not let him parole home because I sent this book??  We've been so careful, and I am just beside myself.

The most that will happen is they will disapprove it and he can choose to destroy it or send it home.

Exactly - my LO asked for an Atlas so dummy Mom sent it from Amazon - the CO's are still laughing at that one. And....I have it back at my house after it was denied to my son.

Ok, thanks!  I figured if it was on a "100 books to read before you die" list it was ok - stupid me : )

My son wanted to know where he was at, so I printed him a map and mailed it in.. The CO's laughed showed him I had sent mail, probably told him what it was and then threw it away.. you aren't the only one that made that mistake.. LOL ... live and learn.. that was MANY moons ago.
