Can I bring books to an inmate?

No, you cannot bring books to an inmate. 

Any book received by an inmate must be shipped directly from a trusted commercial source such as Barnes and Noble (here) or Amazon (here). Further, for safety purposes, the book must usually be a paperback version.

Libraries, publishers and various volunteer services occasionally donate new and used books to jail and prison systems.
