There’s nothing like the feel of real books. Sure, there are digital versions for almost every title you can think of, but the excitement you get from the smell and flipping through pages will always be special to bibliophiles (and anyone who remembers life before the internet).
So if you love burying your nose in a good story, then you’ll be excited to know that Big Bad Wolf Book Sale is coming to the Philippines! Considered to be the world’s biggest book sale, its mission is to make reading accessible to people of all ages, offering as much as 60 to 80 percent discounts for almost 50 container vans worth of books.
“Children’s literature, fiction, non-fiction, and novels will be available at affordable prices,” said Big Bad Wolf Marketing Head Miguel Mercado in a release. “Physical books are here to stay as they stimulate deep reading and engage the readers more. Big Bad Wolf Books wants to do its part in improving literacy by making it accessible and affordable for people to buy books.”
The best thing about Big Bad Wolf is that it’s going to run for 231 hours straight without closing from February 16 to 25 at the World Trade Center in Pasay, which means that you can satisfy your book cravings even at two in the morning!
Here are some titles that you’ll find during the event:
For the young adult fiction fan
For the woman who loves trivia
For the comic book fanatic
For the young mom with a toddler
More titles will be announced on Big Bad Wolf’s Facebook page, so be sure to follow them!
