(Inside Manila) With its advocacy to make reading affordable for people around the world, deemed world’s biggest book sale, The Big Bad Wolf, is coming to Manila for the first time this February 2018, and along with it comes two million books at 60% to 80% discounted prices.

Don’t be mistaken: cheap books aren’t necessarily of poor quality or hand-me-downs—don’t judge a book by its cover, so to speak. All books are 100% new and are purchased directly from publishers and suppliers in UK, USA, Canada, and Europe.

“Physical books are here to stay as they stimulate deep reading and engage the readers more,” said Miguel Mercado, Big Bad Wolf Marketing Head. “Big Bad Wolf Books wants to do its part in improving literacy by making it accessible and affordable for people to buy books,” he added.

Two million is a lot, which means you’re sure to find more than one title that’ll tickle your fancy. According to its data, the Wolf found out that fiction and self-help books are the most highly sought after genres among Filipino readers.
