The contents of my locker.
I thought that I would list the contents of my locker (i.e. all my worldly possessions) as I prepare to move on from this wonderful location.
Since I am still in limbo, I will not be able to take much of my worldly possessions with me. I have to decide what I want to spend postage on to send home, what to donate, and what to "sell" to other inmates.
It is against policy to give, trade, or sell anything of value to another inmate, but I know that if I "give" my stuff away to an inmate, like my radio and headphones, he will turn around and sell them when it is convenient to do so.
So while the books are either going be donated to the inmate library or sent home to form the basis of my personal library once I am released, some of my other assets will hopefully allow me to leave Club Fed with a few dollars to use once I get to my next location.
So maybe I have a few books over the ten-book limit. There have been numerous comments about my reading habits. The following is only those books that are currently in my possession. There are many more books that are making the rounds of other readers, in a storage closet, or have already been donated or sent home.
My locker is a two-door model with three shelves on one side, and the other side open from top to bottom. The locker is 24" wide, 36" high, and 18" deep. There is a panel that divides it in half vertically.
So here is a list of the books that I currently have access to. Some have been read, some have been partially read, and some are still waiting their turn to be devoured.
