A mind is a terrible thing to waste. Reading gives us some place to go when we have to stay where we are. The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go. Reading is to the mind, what exercise is to the body.

We at Grace Period believe that books are essential to every prisoner’s rehabilitation. The capacity to read and enjoy books contributes to reducing re-offending and giving prisoners another chance in life. With 48% of prisoners estimated to have low reading skills, it’s vital that they are able to develop their literacy in prison and an engagement in reading is crucial to this process.

The world belongs to those who read. Today a reader, tomorrow a leader! #booksforprisoners
