Get your bookshelves ready, because the Big Bad Wolf Book Sale is set to huff and puff its way back to Colombo for the second time. Hailed as one of the world’s biggest international book fairs, it made huge waves among book lovers during its inaugural visit to Sri Lanka last year.

Reading enthusiasts can be assured of fantastic bargains at the sale, with discounts between 60% and 80% across a wide range of genres. Big Bad Wolf provides brand new, high-quality books such as literature, young adult, non-fiction and coffee table books, sourced from publishers around the world at discounted prices. The very first sale saw fiction titles flying off the shelves, as well as an incredible variety of children’s books up for grabs, including bedtime stories, activity books and educational tools.

The Big Bad Wolf Book Sale was made more exceptional as the first ever 24-hour book fair held in Sri Lanka. Crowds were fascinated by the novel experience, with readers coming to the sale day and night over the course of the 11-day event. No doubt the success of last year’s sale has paved the way for its return, with the Wolf’s new ‘fangs’ eagerly anticipating its opening date.

Known as the world’s biggest book sale, the Big Bad Wolf Book Sale specialises in providing the widest selection of books possible at the lowest possible prices. It features brand new books at up to 80% off in 24-hour non-stop events. The primary aim of the book sale is to encourage people of all ages to discover the joys of affordable, accessible reading. 

The book sale features a wide range of books across all genres, including fiction and non-fiction bestsellers, young adult fiction, as well as an extensive collection of children’s books.

The Sale, the brainchild of BookXcess founders Andrew Yap and Jacqueline Ng, has been a landmark event in Malaysia since 2009. It has also started extending its footprint across cities in Indonesia, Thailand and the Philippines, and is returning to Sri Lanka for the second time in 2018.
