Fairy tales have taught us to never let big bad wolves in. They are the devourer of children, baby goats, and two out of three enterprising pigs.

Now the Big Bad Wolf is coming and it’s out to get us bookworms and the special fund that we have set aside for literature.

We’re talking about the Big Bad Wolf Book Sale, a Malaysian book sale that started in 2009, and has been touring other Southeast Asian countries like Indonesia and Thailand, which will be having a Manila leg next month. Starting on February 16 at 9 a.m., it will run nonstop for a whopping 231 hours until February 25 at 11:59 p.m. at the World Trade Center Metro Manila in Pasay City. Admission is free.

The Big Bad Wolf Book Sale has been dubbed as the “world’s biggest” of its kind, offering two million books at discounts ranging from 60% to 80%. There’ll be children’s lit, fiction, non‑fiction, and novels.
