We’re teaming up with the Omaha Public Library to help readers find new books — or at least books new to them. Every other week in this space, library patrons will tell us what they’ve been reading lately, and why we might want to read it too.
This week’s Take a Page patron is Carissa Kent from the W. Dale Clark Main Library, 215 S. 15th St. Kent, 26, is from Omaha and works as a horse trainer and at Lakeside Country Store. She typically reads training books and books for school. She enjoys using the Omaha Public Library because of the large variety of materials available.
Kent’s recommended reads:
1. Horses Never Lie: The Heart of Passive Leadership by Mark Rashid.
This is a great horse training book.
2. A Good Horse is Never a Bad Color: Tales of Training through Communication and Trust by Mark Rashid.
This is another great training book.
3. Captivating: Unveiling the Mystery of a Woman’s Soul by John & Stasi Eldredge.
This book is about learning the joy of being a woman.
4. Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers.
This book was interesting and touching. It had many life lessons.
5. The Faraway Horses by Buck Brannaman.
I enjoyed learning about the greatest horse trainer’s life and how he used his past as a way to communicate and relate to horses.
