A quide to The Big Bad Wolf Books in Cebu July 13-23 - 2018

2:58:00 AM

Living in the Philippines might be hard for book lovers, as the amount of book stores/offers is quite underwhelming. When we heard of the Big Bad Wolf Books Cebu event coming to Cebu we couldn't wait for the opening date on July 13.




The Big Bad Wolf Books is one of the biggest book lovers conventions in the world. Not do they only offer thousands of books, the price is marked down 60-80%! Truly a bookworm's paradise. Beside this the event has free admission for everyone!

The event takes place at the IEC convention center, Cebu City, Pope John Paul II Avenue. Only a short walk from Ayala Center mall. The convention center boasts a big parking area for people that decide to arrive with their own vehicle.
 

As the Big Bad Wolf Books Cebu is open 24 hours you'll be able to visit any minute of the day. Ideally, the best time to go there would be early morning during a weekday, that is of course, if you don't have any plans or could take a day of work. But be prepared to spend a lot of time inside as the amount of books offered is massive.

1. Comfortable clothes
Considering the amount of people attending the event, you can assume that the day you will visit will be packed. Be sure to wear comfortable clothes, proper sneakers/walking shoes and easy to wear.I'd advice to bring a sweater. if you are not used to an A/C blasting cold air.

Be sure to bring a backpack or any other kind of bag to comfortably bring your book haul back home! The cashiers do give plastic bags if you were wondering.


2. No food and beverages allowed inside
Unfortunately you are not allowed to bring any drinks (and food) inside. This will be checked upon entering the convention center! Be sure to head to the event on a full stomach and be well hydrated.

It would also be a good idea to drop-by the toilet before starting your hunt.

3. Genre categories/sections
Not sure what you would like to buy yet? Unfortunately, it's not sorted alphabetically, but there are sections for different kind of categories. Feel free to ask the staff if you can't fin that specific book you've been wanting to read. Or ask another fellow visitor about their books!


4. Affordable prices 
The book sale has a discounted price of 60-80% on all books. But in case you already have a list of the books you'd like to buy, be sure to check the online prices and note it down. Some books are cheaper to buy outside the book sale.






5. Payment options
You were finally able to secure what you want to buy. Head over to the very long queue of the cashiers and make your payment. Which can be done by cash, credit card, and Gcash.

Don't want to hassle yourself with a credit/debit card? Be sure to bring enough cash so you won't leave disappointed. Or just head back another day!



I hope you will all enjoy this opportunity to store up on some affordable books!
