Many books fall down - level 2

A Belgian book association has broken the world record for the longest book domino chain ever. It was 614 metres long.

Forty volunteers set up the lines of 4,845 books. It took them two hours. The books were placed to spell the Dutch words for “book,” “fair” and “read”.

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
