Book Domino Chain World Record at the Seattle Public Library

Two college student designers (Luke Greenway and Laura D’Asaro), 27 volunteers, seven hours of work, five attempts, and 2,131 books mixed together at the Seattle Public Library to create the longest book domino chain in the world. The library used the new world record to celebrate and promote their 2013 Summer Reading Program.

There are many, many more chain reactionsworld records, and books in the archives, including this stop motion fun: The Joy of Books.
