Thank You – Cooking Guide is a Keeper!

Complete Idiot's Guide to Cooking Techniques and ScienceThank you for the free books you have sent to me. The first book “The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Cooking Technique/Science” was a perfect choice for me. I have read it twice (so far) and I’ve learned so much. I am visually impaired but with the help of a hand held magnifier I am able to read standard print.

The most recent two books are in Large Print. Thank you for that consideration. Margaret Truman’s “Murder in the House” I have not seen before and “Nurse in London” by Jane ConVense was another great choice.

The prison library here is limited on LP books but librarian helps locate LP books at the Parish Library for me.

Again, thank you for the free books. I will donate them to the prison library so others can enjoy them. Well maybe not. The one on cooking – that’s a keeper!

Thank You – Love to Learn Things

“I have been in prison for 20 years.  Everybody I used to know on the outside has forgot about me including my family.  So your program is really appreciated. I have no money to buy books and I love learn things and I must entertain my mind.”

Thank You – A Positive Route

“I want to say thank you so much for caring enough to send us reading material.  It really helps doing time when we have a route to get our mind away from the fact that we’re locked way… a positive route.”

–  Curtis from Arkansas

Thank you – Starving for Intelligent Literature

“I think I can speak for a lot of other convicts starving for intelligent literature when I say thanks a million. Your act of benevolence is paramount, especially living under these austere conditions.”
