New World Record For Book Domino Chain Set In Poland

Posted at 2:33PM Monday 24 Mar 2014

Who wants to see a few thousand books be abused in pursuit of a world record?

A new Guinness World Record was set in Czestochowa, Poland last week, when a group of students and staff at the Czestochowa School of Economics worked together to build a domino chain made of books. A total of 5,000 books were used, in a chain that stretched from the gymnasium, through several classrooms, corridors and stairs.
