The world’s largest book sale Big Bad Wolf is coming back to Dubai for a 10-day run that will begin next week.
Opening its doors on March 31, the fair is bringing to town over a million books from all genres, with prices starting at Dh2 as titles are offered at a mega discount of up to 90 per cent.
This year’s Big Bad Wolf Book Sale will be popping up at Sound Stages in Dubai Studio City. Entry is free and doors will be open daily from 9am to 2am. This time around, however, visitors will have to register onsite by scanning a QR code and filling out the details on an online form. Upon registering, visitors will be selected randomly to win some mystery prizes.
During the holy month of Ramadan, the book sale promises a bigger edition, offering bestsellers, fiction, non-fiction, self-help, comic books, cookbooks, and more for all age groups.
As a collaborative initiative in strategic partnership with Dubai Arts & Culture Authority, bibliophiles can indulge in stacks of literary gold featuring an unparalleled selection of books across various genres.
From commercial bestsellers to fiction of all genres, non-fiction, comics, cookbooks, self-help and more, there will be something for every reader’s taste, catering to all age groups. It’s also a great opportunity to discover new titles or collect different editions of classics or contemporary novels.
First launched in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, in 2009, the Big Bad Wolf Book Sale aims to make reading accessible, affordable and enjoyable to a whole new generation of readers around the world.
Since its launch, the book sale has toured 37 cities in 15 countries, including Cambodia, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Myanmar, Pakistan, the Philippines, Sri Lanka, South Korea, Singapore, Thailand, Taiwan and most recently, for the first time in Tanzania and Kenya.
Taking place for the fourth time in Ramadan, Big Bad Wolf Books first came to the UAE in 2018 and has become a popular destination for book lovers ever since.
While entry is free, visitors to the Big Bad Wolf Book Sale must register prior to entering the hall by scanning a QR code on-site and filling out a form. Registering also automatically enters visitors into a raffle where they can win a number of prizes.
