Some 17,000 new titles are among the 2 million books up for grabs at the Big Bad Wolf (BBW) Book Sale Manila 2020, which will run for 24 hours Feb. 14-24 at the World Trade Center in Pasay, according to organizers.
A special preview will be held Feb. 13, from 9 a.m. to 12 midnight, exclusive to VIP pass holders and the media.
Highlighting the 10-day book sale is the “Crazy Deals” promotion, which offers titles at 50-90 percent off their retail prices.
For instance, Stephen King’s “Dark Tower” series, consisting of eight books and one short story, sells for P4,100 from its original P8,775 price. The box edition of “Angelus & Diabolus (Angels and Devils): The History of Good and Evil in Christian Art” goes for P4,850 from P13,325. Gills Sparrows’ “Mars: The Ultimate Guide to the Red Planet” is offered at P950 from P5,252.
The 2019 BBW, also held in February at the same venue, drew 300,000 people and sold around 1 million books.
The Big Bad Wolf Book Sale 2020 is a reading advocacy project in collaboration with Gawad Kalinga community development foundation.
