The World’s Biggest Book Sale is Now in Manila: Big Bad Wolf Book Sale

The Big Bad Wolf is the biggest traveling book sale in the world which offers up to 90% discount. It makes its rounds in nine different countries—Thailand, Taiwan, Indonesia, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Myanmar, South Korea, the Philippines, and the United Arab Emirates—all year round.

The Big Bad Wolf sale started in Malaysia in 2009 with the advocacy of its founders, Andrew Yap and Jacqueline Ng, to promote reading habits and provide more affordable books to a new generation of readers.

The Manila sale will run 24 hours non-stop between February 14 and February 24.

Don’t worry if you can’t go to the sale. The same discounts are offered by Big Bad Wolf’s sister company BookXcess Online.

Read these books before the release of their film adaptations in 2020

The King of Horror once declared in his preface of the complete and uncut edition of The Stand that movies nearly always have a diminishing effect on works of fantasy. It doesn’t stop us to get excited about the film adaptations of our favorite books, however. Personally, I love watching movies because it’s the easiest way to share my love for books.

Chaos Walking was originally set to be released in 2019 but was deemed unreleasable by executives. Reshoots were made in April 2019 and we’re not sure when we’ll see Tom Holland play Todd Hewitt. Artemis Fowl’s adaptation was also set to be released last year after a number of delays since its initial development in 2001.

 I have listed here some overdone titles and what my fellow booklovers on Twitter thought are cliché titles. Continue reading “12 Cliché Titles I Am Getting Tired Of”
