Open Books Prisoner Resource book

Things to Do While You’re Waiting is a book written by Bob Gerold specifically for prisoners who are about to be released from jail or prison. The goal of the book is to guide them in establishing a plan to use after they get out.

We are funding this first printing to both distribute books to inmates and to use to raise more funds.

It costs about $25,000 to house an inmate and only $5 to give them a chance. If only one person in 5000 uses the book to stay out of prison for only one year, the printing is cost effective Please help Open Books publish this book and make a difference.
