The Big Bad Wolf Book Sale, dubbed as the world’s biggest, is coming to Manila for the first time this February.

Offering two million books across various genres, the sale features brand new English books at discounts ranging from 60 percent to 80 percent for customers to enjoy.

The book sale will be open 24 hours a day and will run for 231 hours non-stop, beginning from February 16 until February 25 at the World Trade Center Metro Manila in Pasay City.

“Children’s literature, fiction, non-fiction, and novels will be available at affordable prices,” said Big Bad Wolf marketing head Miguel Mercado, noting that admission to the book sale is free.

“Physical books are here to stay as they stimulate deep reading and engage the readers more,” Mercado added.

The Big Bad Wolf Book Sale specializes in providing the widest selection of books possible at the lowest possible prices.

The brainchild of BookXcess founders Andrew Yap and Jacqueline Ng, it has been a trademark event in Malaysia since 2009. It has also started extending its footprint across cities in Indonesia, Thailand and Sri Lanka, and is arriving in the Philippines for the first time next month.

“Big Bad Wolf Books wants to do its part in improving literacy by making it accessible and affordable for people to buy books,” Mercado said.
