The Big Bad Wolf Book Sale, one of the most anticipated events for book lovers alike, returns online, boasting over 60,000 book titles to be sold at the event, with discounts up to 99 % off. For the first time ever, the offers are available for everyone in the Philippines, nationwide.
Before the pandemic, the book sale brought over two million books to be sold at the World Trade Center in Pasay City from February 14 to 24, 2020. The event operated 24 hours a day during the whole duration of the 10-day sale.
In light of COVID-19, large-scale events such as book fairs were affected as they were classified as mass gatherings. BBW heeded the call for adjustment and moved to the book fair online to work around COVID restrictions. Alongside the assured safety of book hunters, BBW’s move to the world of e-commerce has allowed more room for book titles, increasing the choices of literature to pick from.
With online selling comes a few limitations. The book fair does not have the option for cash-on-delivery, but they offer other options through e-payment apps like GCash, as well as through online bank transactions with BPI and BDO.
The Big Bad Wolf Online Book Sale officially opens online on June 30 and runs until July 7, 2021. Check out Big Bad Wolf Philippines’ official Facebook page here and their exclusive portal here for more details.
