Seattle Public Library Sets World Record for Longest Book Domino Chain (video)

book domino chainHere's something you can't do with ebooks. The Seattle Public Library picked a novel way to kick off their 2013 Summer Reading Program. They set a new world record for the longest domino chain made from books. Over 2100 books were set up for this chain by 27 volunteers.

In case you're bothered by the mistreatment of the books, the SPL was careful to note that:

The books used to make this domino chain were either donated or are out of date and no longer in the library's collection. They are now being sold by the Friends of Seattle Public Library to help raise money for library programs and services.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader: "I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
