BIG BAD WOLF BOOK SALES

MY CATCH FOR THE EVENT (MOSTLY BIOGRAPHIES)


Lots of books and lots of people but not much space

By 11 am the place was jam pack


it's like going to concert, pushing and shoving at the entrance




Half an hour before the gates open (and I thought I'm early)



Out of all the warehouse sales related to books this year , this is the one. Everybody especially the bookaholics have been talking about this event since early of this year. Since I miss the last year event, I've decided to give this one a definite must go event.

This year it's held at Amcorp Mall (easy access, plenty of parking and near to LRT station) next to Book Xcess shop at level 3. I went on the first day, half an hour early but to my surprise almost 100 people are even earlier. The space was a bit small and no wonder when the gates open within 10 minutes it's jam pack.

No time to review, just grab whatever you can. And since I've decided to concentrate on biography of sports personality within an hour I've completed my shopping with 30 biographies mostly ep footballers. It's really cheap, a hard cover bio of John Terry at Kinokuniya = RM 110 but it's RM 8 at BBW sales.

Overall it's really cheap and most of the books range from 2006-2009 , organizer however could improve for the next year sales especially on the size of the hall (it's too small and I'm not the only one whose complaining).

Hi Rizal,

With 30 biographies to read, will you have time for your blog?

Seems like there were great bargains.
