Big Bad Wolf’s book sales is back !!!
I leaped with excitement when I saw this newspaper advertisement in “The Star” newspaper yesterday. Or if you miss the newspaper ads, you can get more details from its homepage - Big Bad Wolf Books.
I have missed its earlier warehouse sales but I am definitely going to make it this round. Getting there is not hard. It’s at Amcorp Mall where the Kelana Jaya line of Putra Lrt can get you there. Just get off from the Taman Jaya station and Amcorp Mall is staring at your face already. For those who prefer driving to Amcorp Mall for this book sales, if you can’t find parking at Amcorp Mall itself, consider parking at the A&W Restaurant opposite Amcorp Mall itself. You can help yourself with the famous A&W Root Beer before you shop for your books
The book sales is located at the 3rd floor of Amcorp Mall and it’s running from 26 Nov – 2 Dec at 10am-9pm. So, that’s 11 hours of book browsing and careful selecting before you buy your favourite books.
I saw the news on Internet that the very morning of the book sales already saw about 5,000 visitors eagerly waiting to get the best grabs available. It’s no kidding. When I reached the faithful place, this is what greets me ..
Big crowds making their way into the Big Bad Wolf Book Sales
Guards and assistants are around to help you around
The books are segmented into areas like general books, romance, children, cookbook etc. Paperboxes are available for you to carry your chosen titles around while you still shop for more books.
The books are a real steal at RM5, 8 or 10 and these are new books! I am disappointed not to find many novels of popular fiction writers like Jeffrey Archer, Michael Crichton, John Grisham, Sidney Sheldon ( they are my favourite authors btw ). But, but, but, but….. I managed to grab some very good business reads! I am surprised to see books by gurus of Leadership & Business ie John Maxwell & Napolean Hill going for RM10 ! Yes! Can you believe it ?? I just bought 2 of John Maxwell’s books like 1 month ago for RM40 each and now, it’s only 1/4 of the price I paid for. My heart sanked ! The best part is that I have not even started reading it. You can also find the Jason Bourne’s series here ie The Bourne Betrayal , The Bourne Ultimatum.
Lately, I have buying so many fiction novels and personal development/business books they have been stacking more than 8 inches high next to my bed, on my bed side table. I must really spend more time reading at night nowadays before sleeping. And below, here’s my damage for the day from the Big Bad Wolf book sales .. (drum roll) – presenting the 6 books of my choice
My purchases – 6 books total RM54 or about USD15
Checking out after you have completed your purchases is easy. There are clear signs to bring you to the Cash Only counters or Cash/Credit Cards counters. You will be guided by the assistants once a cashier is available. So, despite the long queue, everything is orderly and proper. For OCBC credit card holders, you’re entitled to an additional 10% discount too. So, bring along your OCBC credit card if you have one. You get further savings on top of the already GREAT BARGAIN !! Oh, 1 more thing, you get the below freebie too. A cute book mark of the Big Bad Wolf himself. The wall on top of where Mr Wolf is standing reminds me of Humprey Dumprey instead ~.~
A freebie for your purchases – Big Bad Wolf bookmark
If you don’t have any plans for this weekend or plan to get something to read, this is the right place to go. By the way, there’s also another 2nd hand bookstore having sales a few doors away. Don’t mistaken it for the Big Bad Wolf book sales.
