Library Sets Up World's Longest Book Domino Maze

book-domino-maze.jpg

To celebrate the start of its 2013 Summer Reading Program, the Seattle Public Library set up and knocked down this domino maze consisting of 2,131 retired books. Wait -- books get to retire? Why would a book need to retire? "Boogers between the pages." Sick!

Hit the jump for the video and wish you were there to knock it over before it was supposed to be.

Thanks to Christian, who wants to set up the longest domino book fire all Fahrenheit 451 style.

    The lighting and the lack of faces pointing your direction kind of strengthens that confusion
