Watch the World Record for the Largest Domino Chain Made of 2,131 Books

In late May, The Seat­tle Pub­lic Library set a world record for the Longest Book Domi­no Chain, accord­ing to the World Record Acad­e­my. Watch as 2,131 books — all part of an upcom­ing book sale — fall one by one. Appar­ent­ly, it took 27 vol­un­teers sev­en hours — and five failed attempts — to pull off this feat for the ages. h/t Metafil­ter
