Incarceration can be a difficult and isolating experience. Everyone deserves the opportunity to live their best life. We’ve created this journal to help inmates manage their circumstances, improve their mental health, and keep their minds active.

We are proud to be included in the Prison Book Program's Amazon Wish List. 

"Prison Book Program mails books to people in prison to support their educational, vocational, 

and personal development and to help them avoid returning to prison after their release. 

We also aim to provide a quality volunteer experience that introduces citizens to issues 

surrounding the American prison system and the role of education in reforming it.  

We believe that everyone has a right to read and that books are tremendous sources 

of enlightenment, enjoyment, and transformation. 

We also strive to lessen the dehumanization and isolation of incarceration by providing our 

readers with a connection to a community of caring people.

We are proud to be included in the Woman's Prison Book Project Wish List.

"Since 1994, the Women’s Prison Book Project (WPBP) has provided women and transgender persons in prison 

with free reading materials covering a wide range of topics from law and education 

(dictionaries, GED, etc.) to fiction, politics, history, and women’s health. 

We are an all-volunteer, grassroots organization.

We seek to build connections with those behind the walls and to educate those of us on the 

outside about the realities of prison and the justice system."

Great resource for incarcerated people! - 5 stars

I am the director of a nonprofit organization, Prison Book Program, that sends free books and reading materials to people in prisons and jails in all 50 states. We keep this book and the other Inmate Activity Books by Buttery and Branigan on our wish list for donors who support our program to purchase. This is the best book so far, packed with so many resources that are highly valuable for people in prison: games, puzzles, mental health and mindfulness prompts, journaling exercises, calendars and planning tools, health and exercise activities, you name it; it's in there. We have now sent out hundreds of the Buttery and Branigan books to incarcerated folks throughout the country, and we can't wait to send more! Please support their work - they definitely understand the needs of this audience. 


Another great offering from Patricia Branigan to help people in prison! - 5 stars

We have distributed several copies of Volume 1 of this book and have received very good feedback on it! It doesn't repeat the same items from Volume 1 and contains new resources, boredom-busters, and mood-lifters. I can't recommend this book enough for programs like ours or for anyone with an incarcerated loved one. 

Highly Recommend - 5 stars

This book is a wonderful resource containing meditations, gratefulness and workout trackers, and various helpful coping skills and games designed to keep an active brain. As a therapist, I recommend this book to clients.
