@MrEconomical oof that was a stupid mistake, added quotes.

by pay it forward chain, I mean where person B is gifted a book by Person A, and then gifts a book to person C, after which Person C gifts a book to Person D and so on.

In this case, the chain would be A => B => C => D.

One person can appear multiple times in a chain.
