The Big Bad Wolf Book Sale is touted to be the biggest book sale in the world this year. When I saw its banner displayed along the roads leading to the university which I am attending, I did not give it a second thought. I love to read, and I love to buy books, but I dismissed it as just another book sale. A couple of days after I saw the banner, my husband asked me if I am interested to go for the sale. That triggered an interest in me, and finally, we went yesterday with my husband carrying my baby around the hall throughout the two hours which I spent browsing the piles and piles of books.
I am pleased that the book sale did not disappoint me. It had some of the titles which I was looking for but didn’t have the budget to buy, such as Junot Diaz’s The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao and Nigella Lawson’s How To Be A Domestic Goddess. In total, I bought sixteen books and the damage came up to only less than RM150, which is very, very affordable by the usual standards.
If only the books are more organized (not sure if this is due to the organizers or the shoppers) and the authors are more varied. Certain titles were available in piles, whilst some has one and only one copy left.
