Pinoy bookworms, are you ready to huff and puff and blow the house down? Big Bad Wolf Book Sale is finally happening now in the Philippines.

Manila, Philippines - The Big Bad Wolf is the grandest book sale in the world, offering 60%-80% discounts on all books. Since 2009, they have been touring the world and reached countries such as Thailand, Sri Lanka, Indonesia and its home country, Malaysia. This year, the Philippines get to have their first "huff and puff" experience, Big Bad Wolf style. 

It already started last February 16th and will run until 25th of February operating 24 hours a day (231 hours non-stop). The sale has over 1.5 million books covering 20,000 high-end English titles across all genres, may it be fiction, non-fiction, children’s books and rare collector’s titles.

Pinoy Secret Files get to experience the "huff and puff" last February 19, Monday morning. Here is our book haul (PS. All of these are for our Kids). 

Compton Valance Books by Matt Brown

Sammy Feral's Diaries of Weird Books by Eleanor Hawken

Puppy Academy Books by Gill Lewis

Horrid Henry Books by Francesca Simon


Animal Magic Books by Holly Webb

Beast Quest Books from Orchard Books

We really enjoyed book hunting and it was a nice experience. All the staffs were accommodating and nice.

We are satisfied with our purchases plus the books we got are not available in the Philippines. We availed all the books for only 3,600 Pesos, such a treat!

If you are planning to come, here are some of our survival tips:

1. Come in early. Since they are operating 24 hours, it is much better to book hunt during midnight or early morning. Less people and less traffic.

2. Come in prepared (physically, mentally and financially). Thus, you need to come wearing comfortable clothes, bring bags or luggages to carry your haul, have enough sleep, has full stomach and most important thing is to bring cash or credit card with you.

3. Take your time. Again the sale runs 24 hours so take as much time as you need.

4. Make a new friend/Bring a friend. If you are planning to scout and hunt a lot of books, you need someone to help you for the place is huge. Also, you will meet a lot of bookworms like you so this is a great venue for meeting new buddies (or maybe your forever)?

What are you waiting for? You still have couple of days to experience the Big Bad Wolf Book Sale. The sale is happening at the World Trade Center, Pasay City. Great deals, great experience and hope to experience it again in many years to come.
