If only I had an Easy Bake oven then I would be happy, said my 6-year-old self.

Dear Winnipeg Women,
I was very moved by [last issue's article: P.S. You're Beautiful by Stephanie Staples]. Beauty does come from within, how you feel on the inside about yourself is reflected on the outside.

It is NOT something you buy.
Simplify the book club experience with a Book Club Kit from the Winnipeg Public Library. Each kit comes complete with ten copies of your requested book, book reviews, suggested questions and tips for running a successful meeting, all packaged-up in a reusable tote. The only catch is the timing kits can't be reserved for specific dates and many of the popular titles have lengthy wait lists. Search for book club kits on the online catalogue at www.winnipeg.ca/library or visit your local library for more details.
