Over at The Innocent Flower, a prison librarian named Emily is talking about how important the library at her prison is for prisoners. And she says the male prisoners especially love science fiction and fantasy books:

I have found that these men here absolutely love fantasy and science fiction books. Twilight is a hot commodity here and I have already had a few of the books stolen and then anonymously returned; they must not want to admit that they are reading these popular teen books!


She adds, "Working here has made me realize even more the importance of libraries for schools, the public, and even prisons." The blog's owner, author Michelle Davidson Argyle, is taking book donations for Emily's prison library — and no doubt your local prison would love some donations of science fiction and fantasy books as well.
