We love independent bookstores and try to feature one each season, but this can be difficult. As small business owners, it is often difficult to carve time out of their weeks to speak with us. So we are always grateful when the stars align and we can make it happen.  This week’s episode features Michelle Haring, owner of Cupboard Maker Books in Enola, PA. She tells us about how she first sold rare books, then more widely used books, then new books. And the bookstore has also joined forces with a local nonprofit to “carry” (yes, we’re putting this in air quotes), adoptable cats. There are three store cats that visitors can always see–Mouse, Annika, and Zak. And what goes better with a cozy book than a cat on your lap (at least in Carrie’s estimation).  Books Mentioned in this Episode: 1- Gone With the Wind by Margaret Mitchell 2- One Day We'll All Be Dead and None of This Will Matter by Scaachi Koul 3- Love, Chai, and Other Four-Letter Words by Annika Sharma 4- Maggie Moves On by Lucy Score 5- Things We Never Got Over by Lucy Score 6- Riley Thorn series by Lucy Score 7- Notes on an Execution by Danya Kufafka 8- Death Motor series by Michelle Haring Shows mentioned-- 1- Stranger Things, Season 4 (2022) 2- Dr. Strange in the Multiverse of Madness (2022) You can find Cupboard Maker Books on Instagram and FB at Cupboard Maker Books and at their  website                                                                                                                         Follow us on Facebook at The Perks of Being a Book Lover Instagram at @perksofbeingabookoverpod  For show notes for any episode, go to our website at
