Please allow me this time to say “thank you.” Because had it not been for your company and the free books that you provide, I would have found myself in a very, very dark place a long time ago (mentally) here in solitary confinement. That books that you’ve provided for me over the years have been my (dare I say) “beacon of light” behind these walls and gates and tons of razor wire, regardless of if I was in solitary confinement or not.
