It was an interesting experience. I would definitely do it again to get community service hours.We picked out books for inmates in Texas jails, its nice to think that we were giving them something to look forward too.

On March 31st, I participated on the Inside Book Project by writing letters to prisoners who requested some books in order to learn or find some kind of entertainment while serving their time in prison. I found this event very interesting since I would of never thought of serving the community this way by giving hope to those in prison.

Once again, it was an amazing experience working with inside books. I love being able to take friends with me for their first time volunteering with the program and watching them fall in love with it too.

I always love going to The Inside Books Project because I find it extremely relaxing and personally fulfilling. Reading the letters from prisoners and choosing books for them makes me happy. I try my best to pick books they will enjoy reading because I want them to have something to look forward too. This is one of my favorite volunteer activities.

I liked matching books to different people and their interests. It was fun, and I loved reading letters and sending letters back.

It was interesting to send letters to people in prison. It was a different experience for me. I tried really hard to look for books that they were interested in. While i searched for these books, I really wondered how they ended up in prison.

I have been taken this servicing event on few occasions and every time it is very enjoyable. The people and the other participants are very kind and its an overall unique experience every time. At the servicing event, I got the chance to answer letters that were delivered from a prison with books that the prisoners have been wanting. It is very nice because I am able to provide a form of entertainment to a group of people who are closed off.
