KUALA LUMPUR – The Big Bad Wolf Book Sale is back in Kuala Lumpur from 7th December 2023 to 23rd December 2023, with the Book Sale open from 10 am to midnight daily, Big Bad Wolf Books is charging ahead with its mission to build a new generation of readers — and at the ideal time for some festive gift shopping.
Malaysia’s favourite wolf brings along a surprise this time around as bookworms can find the biggest, baddest book sale at Tropicana Gardens Mall this year — a brand new, more central location, which features a modern and enhanced shopping experience, as well as better MRT accessibility for readers based in both Petaling Jaya and Kuala Lumpur.
This will be the first time the Book Sale takes place in a shopping mall, spanning around 100,000 sqft over 3 floors and taking over the entire end of the west walk area of the mall.
As a bonus, the mall has plenty of parking — perfect to welcome a horde of ravenous book devourers! In addition, there is a plethora of F&B establishments to choose from in the mall, as well as other amenities like ATMs, washrooms, and even convenience stores for savvy shoppers to utilise.
There’s a title for everyone, whether your preference is towards fascinating worldly non-fiction insights, like ‘The Bomber Mafia’ by Malcolm Gladwell; sweet and thoughtful coming-of-age tales like ‘Freckles’ by Cecelia Ahern; contemplative and cerebral poetry collections like ‘Dearly’ by Margaret Atwood; or emotional, moving narratives like ‘Finding Chika’ by Mitch Albom.
Adding a dash of local flair, the Book Sale will also feature offerings from more than 50 local publishers, as it looks to convert even more non–readers into passionate page-turners, and in the end, ‘Change the World One Book at a Time’.
“We’re so excited to show Malaysian readers how we’ve made the Big Bad Wolf Book Sale even badder this time around,” says co-founder of Big Bad Wolf Books, Andrew Yap.
“We’ve made some exciting changes since our triumphant return last year, as we wanted to seize the opportunity to start afresh and give our loyal fans a revamped, rejuvenated, and renewed Big Bad Wolf. Viva la Wolf! It is time to convert the masses to book readers and reward avid readers alike with the return of the World’s Biggest Book Sale.”
Part of Big Bad Wolf’s transformation includes what they’re calling the ‘Book Revolution’. In an effort to rebel against the formidable duo of rising book prices and shrinking bookstores — all the while continuing to be strong advocates of reading habits and increased English literacy — they aim to provide unbeatable discounts from 50% up to as much as 90%, with books going for as low as RM3.
In fact, there are even deals on top of existing deals! For example, ‘The Little Prince’ by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry has been discounted from almost RM80 to a mere RM8.99, and for superhero geeks, the Marvel edition of ‘Absolutely Everything You Need To Know’ has been slashed from RM108 to RM16.99.
If you’re looking for festive presents for kids, you have options like the Disney ‘My Mega Book of Fun’, dropped down to RM8.99 from more than RM80, and new parents can pick up ‘My First Learning Box’ for only RM11.99 from RM105.
“With a huge selection of books across every imaginable genre and at unbeatable prices, this edition of the Big Bad Wolf Book Sale is the perfect Christmas and festive season shopping spectacular. Whether you are looking to treat yourself or your loved ones, there is sure to be a book or two (or many more than that) that will tick all the right boxes,” Jacqueline Ng, co-founder of Big Bad Wolf Books added.
