We got you covered! 

Big Bad Wolf (BBW), the world’s biggest book sale, is happening yet again. With that, here are four important things to know about this much awaited sale for all bookworms.

  1. It’s happening online

Keeping in mind everyone’s safety in a time of COVID-19, the management has adapted to the times by bringing BBW online. 

With this, BBW fans no longer need to run to the physical venue and hoard books like they’re in tributes in the Hunger Games. Shoppers can buy books from the safety and comfort of their own homes. 

“We’ve always been warmly welcomed in the Philippines, and we’re thrilled to be able to come back virtually,” says Jaqueline Ng, co-founder of Big Bad Wolf Books. “The current global situation has led us to commit to creating the best Online Book Sale shopping experience for everyone so that we may continue to pursue our core mission of spreading the joy and inculcate the habit of reading. In the future, once the pandemic dissipates and the world re-opens its borders, we certainly look forward to hosting more physical Book Sale in the Philippines.”

Happening from June 30 to July 7, 2021, shoppers just simply need to visit https://signup-ph.bbwbooks.com/ and create an account to experience this year’s BBW.

2. 60,000 book titles

And since it is happening online, limited physical space for books is no longer an issue. With that, BBW is giving bookworms 60,000 books titles to choose from! 

Unlike during a physical sale where finding books can be a challenge, in this online version, shopping is now easier. Books are organized based on genres. Shoppers can browse for books or search by keywords, title, author, or ISBN number.
