Book Requests (Part 1)

October 19, 2010

Hey there, this is the first reading list I am compiling in effort to stave off really bad books that you might get me on accident (this isn’t to say your taste is bad, it is just a precaution). Also, this isn’t to say that you shouldn’t send me a book you think I would really really like! Surprises can be fun too! Unfortunately, all books must be mailed directly from a publisher or a recognized and verifiable distributor (i.e. Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Borders); fortunately, you can order pretty much any book via Barnes and Noble or Amazon. With out further delay, here it is!


– Books of Norwegian Names.

How to Stay Alive in the Woods: A Complete Guide to Food, Shelter and Self-Preservation Anywhere (By: Bradford Angier)

Against History Against Leviathan! (By: Fredy Perlman)

Letters of Insurgents (By: Fredy Perlman)

Norsk, nordmenn og Norge 1: Textbook for Beginning Norwegian. (By: Kathleen Strokker & Haddal Odd)

Discipline and Punish (By: Michel Foucault)

– Planet Earth (The Book).

Bleach –past issue #32– (By: Tite Kubo)

– Akira (Graphic Novel/Manga)

– Species Being

Art of War (By: Sun Tzu) /// There are thousands of different versions of this text; send me all of them.

Caliban & the Witch (By: Silvia Federici)

– Wolf’s Rain (By: Keiko Nobumoto)

Dragon Hunter –past issue #4–(By: Hong Seock-Seo)

Ponyo –the book–.

– Having little, being much (By: Fredy Perlman)

– Books on Native resistance –Dakota–.


If you decide to buy me a book, e-mail: exitpanopticon(at) saying you did so. This way, I don’t get thirteen copies of the same book.

[Note: Books with a strike through them have already been purchased for Erik.]

Later, Erik.

    From Amazon, is it all right to order books from 3rd party sellers? They don’t always label their packages “AMAZON.” Most books at Amazon have a long list of private people selling a copy through their ordering system.

      The jail’s policy is that books must come from either Amazon, B&N, Borders…or a “verifiable distributor.” They may not come from a bookstore, or an independent business (like most of the 3rd party sellers on Amazon). And, it seems like what they count as a “verifiable distributor” depends on who’s working the mail room that day. BUT, here’s what you can do: On Amazon, check out the new or used books by 3rd party sellers that use the “Fulfillment by Amazon” program. This means those independent sellers have shipped their whole inventory to an Amazon warehouse, and Amazon itself will take care of shipping and managing those items. So, even though you’d be paying a 3rd party seller, the books would come in complete Amazon packaging, and should get through to Erik. If you have any further questions, don’t hesitate to e-mail or call the mail room at the jail. Thanks!
