Book Dominoes DOE

The Belgian reading association BOEK set a new world record for the longest book domino chain.

Book Dominos 2

They did this to celebrate books and promote reading.

They spent a whole night setting up 4,845 books in a 600-metre domino chain and then knocked them all down.

The trail was 614 meters  (670 yards) long.

It took two hours to set up — six minutes to knock down.
