The call has gone out for volunteers to help in a world record attempt in Hampshire. Gosport's Discovery Centre is hoping to bring at least one thousand and one hundred people together on Saturday 15th August - to simultaneously balance a book on their heads and cover five metres either on foot, or for people with disabilities, in wheelchairs or mobility scooters.
The organisers say that would-be record breakers need to be in Walpole Park by 11.15am and bring a book of a minimum 23cm x 15cm (9in x 5.9in) and maximum 31cm x 23cm (12.2in x 9in). That's because the size of the book are very important to ensure the record is valid.
The current record for the most people balancing books on their heads is 998 - it was broken in Sydney, Australia in November 2012. For more information you can visit the Gosport Discovery Centre online.
A new world record has been set for the fastest single-handed channel crossing in a sail-powered dinghy.

The National Motor Museum in Beaulieu is hoping to set a new world record later for the longest ever line of toy cars. More than 15,000 miniature cars will be lined up nose to tail along a two-kilometre route around the museum and its grounds.
Several celebrities have donated models to the attempt, including racing driver Sir Stirling Moss.
Andy Ollerenshaw, from Beaulieu's Events team, said: "*It will be an exciting event to come and watch on the day. *
"Children who bring two or more toy cars today will get half-price admission to Beaulieu. To qualify, donated cars can be of any type designed to be played with by hand including cars, lorries, tractors and quad bikes but not large enough to sit on."**
