Take a break from the screen and read a scene

March 2, 2021  //  FOUND IN: Our Employees,

Tiger King. Trolls. Bridgerton. Mulan. Hamilton. Emily in Paris. Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom. Even Game of Thrones made a binge-worthy comeback. These are just some of the movies and TV shows that had many of us glued to our screens this past year. 

And let us not forget how Disney+ brought back all the nostalgia vibes and how it kept many little ones busy while Zoom meetings were taking place. Needless to say, most people have spent a lot of time in front of the screen. 

As March is National Reading Month, it’s a great time to take a break from the screen and read a scene. Share your book recommendations with everyone across Michigan Medicine and motivate others that might need a push to finish that book they started last year. 

Remember the days when your teacher threw the class a pizza party after a read-a-thon? While pizza parties and large gatherings won’t be happening any time soon, your team and department can: 

  • Share articles or books that would help or inspire someone at work or personally 
  • Celebrate colleagues who have published works from all genres
  • Host a team/department book club or an all genre book chat

Michigan Medicine is compiling an employee book recommendation list, the first to ever be published here. And submitting your recommendations is easy! It can be done in one of three ways: 

With work schedules, families and other responsibilities, having a quiet moment to read a book may not be an option. Audiobooks or reading a quick blog post totally count too! Do whatever works best for you. 

Recommendations will be published each week starting next Wednesday, March 10. The deadline to submit is Tuesday, March 29 and a downloadable list will be published on Wednesday, March 31. 

Happy Reading!
