New magazines and old find their place in readers’ lives.
A small crowd gathered at the Rotary Annual Book Sale at Tea Gardens over the Easter long weekend. Imagine my delight as I joined them, savouring the 1997 Country Style magazines on offer.the moral of the story is, don’t put your used Country Style magazines in the recycling bin! Instead, donate them to a charity that can then turn them into funds for good causes in the community. Kellyanne Gianatti, Mulgoa, NSW
THE BEST MEDICINE
Last month, when I was recuperating after surgery, a dear friend visited me with a block of chocolate, a bottle of champagne and the latest issue of Country Style. The thrill of running my fingers over the pages helped make my recovery that much easier. I can’t wait to delve into cooking Tamsin Carvan’s ‘Not Too Sweet Pumpkin Pie’ (March 2015, page 86) as soon as I’m back on my feet! Natasha Nevison, Stanhope Gardens, NSW
Shortly after I moved into my beautiful new home six months ago, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I had no idea how to deal with the news so I decided to begin cleaning out my cupboards — and came across my Country Style collection. I disappeared into the wonderful pages. with the support of my husband, and the feel-good stories in your magazine, I’m looking to the future with optimism. Jan East, Ningi, Queensland
