Cebuano bookworms and book lovers get ready to be part of the wolf pack! The Big Bad Wolf will be opening his lair in the Queen City of the South. 

We've been clamoring for Big Bad Wolf Books to visit Cebu since the time they held their first book sale in Manila in February of this year. 

Thousands of readers were petitioning them to come back to the Philippines but to specifically hold the event in one of the Visayas-Mindanao regions.

After teasing their Facebook followers for the past few days, they finally made the announcement at midnight of May 26, 2018.

Book enthusiasts will have nonstop 24-hours unfettered access to millions of books for 10 days. Discounts are 60-80% off regular prices. Admission to the book sale is free. 

Genre ranges from Business to Children's to Mystery to Popular Fiction to History to Autobiographies, name it and most likely they'll have it. Browse through the numerous titles at your heart's content.

Cebu City is the perfect venue in the Visayas to hold one of the biggest traveling book fairs in Asia. With a population of more than 3 million people plus accessible to other provinces via sea and air, we can foresee that there will be an influx of book aficionados that will make the event a success.

I scrolled through the posts of my friends and gathered their insights on what to expect and do when you are at the Big Bad Wolf event. 

  • Eat, drink, and pee before shopping. 
  • Prepare a list of book titles or topics that you're interested in so that it's easier for you to navigate the area. 
  • Allocate 2-5 hours or more! 
  • They accept Cash, Debit and Credit Cards. 
  • Look for the Sale Items for the day.
  • They can reserve or hold books for 24 hours. 
  • Shop or visit during off peak hours. 
  • Plan ahead by saving money for it. 
  • Be patient.
  • Bring a friend or family member.
  • Have fun and enjoy.
