The annual book sale features approximately 33,000 books including 17,000 brand new titles at 50%-90% off! The genre ranges from fictional classics to romance novels and nonfiction selections to young adult, literature, romance, thrillers, self-help, architecture, graphic novels, children's books and activity books, bibles and more.
“The Big Bad Wolf Book Sale is not just about selling books to target readers; we hope to change the habits of society and their mindset to empower and inspire someone to want to pursue a dream. Many of us are not raised with the habit of reading, but I believe that it’s never too late to start. It is just our third visit to Manila but we have started to witness the power of books being able to transform lives. We try to bring the price of books as low as we can so that it will not be a barrier for anyone who wants to read. Last year, we created an impact by creating more readers in four different cities in the Philippines including Manila, Cebu, Davao and Pampanga,” said Jacqueline Ng, Co-Founder of the Big Bad Wolf Book Sale.
Aside from the deals, there are talks, games, and more forms of entertainment in store. Intellectual Property Office of the Philippines (IPOPHL), with a booth at the Sale to raise awareness on the importance of the copyright system, especially amongst authors, publishers and the general public, is giving talks on copyright at the site.
The event's CSR arm Red Readerhood, meanwhile, encourages visitors to donate books that will eventually make their way to those who need it the most. The collected books will be distributed by Gawad Kalinga to the people in the affected communities of the Taal Volcano in Batangas and to the communities, barangays, and public schools in Mindoro.
