Great news Bookworms! The Big Bad Wolf Book Sale (BBWBS) is finally back onsite after 3 years. The biggest and baddest book event of the year officially kicked off June 23, 2023 and will run until July 3, 2023. It is open every day from 10AM to 1AM at the PICC Forum Tent, Pasay City.
The BBWBS was previously held online, but of course, nothing compares to the thrill of being able to browse through the stands in search of the books on your to-be-read list for a steal.
“The Big Bad Wolf Manila Book Sale 2023 promises an unforgettable experience for all book lovers, with a wide range of titles at unbeatable prices. It’s an opportunity to celebrate the joy of reading and connect with fellow book enthusiasts. Don’t miss out on this magical event!” said Jaquelene Ng, one of the founders of Big Bad Wolf.
Its return onsite also comes with many exciting activities, such as the “Book Haul Contest,” where shoppers have the chance to win a trolley full of books by posting a creative photo or video of their experience during the BBWBS. All they have to do is is post it on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or TikTok with the hashtags #BBWManila2023 and #TrolleyfulOfBooks2023. Although there can only be one winner for the Trolley Full of Books, daily vouchers amounting to P25,000 are up for grabs for many other lucky participants.
Entrance to the BBWBS is free, but don’t forget to scan and register the QR Codes found throughout the hall to unlock more benefits and deals.
A ribbon cutting ceremony was conducted by Big Bad Wolf founders Andrew Yap and Jaquelene Ng last June 23, 2023 alongside distinguished guests to celebrate its opening day.
