My book to my AZ (Eyman) pen pal/little bro was returned, and I did get a notice stating Amazon, Barnes & Nobles, eBay, or Craigslist are all not authorized and that’s not even the definite list. I felt so rotten reading that, I honestly just wanted to send my pen pal a book to help him learn more.
Luckily they did not charge him to mail it back, they just decided to “refuse the package” directly instead, so it would get returned and refunded into my account. Kudos to the mail room.
I got a letter from him and he said what most people have been doing to get books is just printing them off the internet (if they’re in public domain) and sending them in a bit at a time. It’s a bummer, but reading is very important.
Unfortunately, I have also been informed by pen pals when facilities go on lockdown or at certain security levels there is no library access offered. If anyone has any good sites I can print out novels that are currently in public domain (due to copyright laws) please post ‘em here!
