THE BIG Bad Wolf (BBW) Book Sale is giving Davao City a grand treat for the holiday season, promising avid readers an exclusive discount of up to 95% off.
The World’s Biggest Book Sale, which is now on its third time in the city, will be held at SMX Convention Center, SM Lanang, from Dec. 15 to 23.
Andrew Yap, BBW founder, advocates more accessible and affordable books nationwide, as the reading culture in the Philippines is already amazing.
“There are not enough bookstores not just in the Philippines, but it’s a global problem. We need to build more bookstores, and we need to have more accessibility to books, and here we are trying our best to make books more accessible and affordable,” Yap said.
BBW was founded by Andrew Yap and Jacqueline Ng in 2009 who first launched it in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. BBW has toured 15 countries and 37 cities, including Davao City, Manila, Malaysia, Cambodia, Singapore, Thailand, Hong Kong, and Indonesia.
The company has also begun branching out to book readers outside the Asia Pacific and conducted book tours in Tanzania, Kenya, and the United Arab Emirates.
In the same way, Carolyn Chuaying, BBW Philippines partner, said there are more new books to be introduced in Davao City, shipping more containers filled with books from the United States, United Kingdom, and Germany.
“About two million books of different genres will be made available so that Dabawenyos will be able to experience brand new books, fresh stocks that are coming in because we don’t simply bring leftovers from these cities that we went to, each city is special,” she said.
Big Bad Wolf will also be collaborating with Gawad Kalinga, to introduce the Red Readerhood Program, turning the joys of book-buying into an opportunity for giving to the less fortunate.
