Few things unlock as wholesome of core memories as a book fair. Going to your school book fair to see if you can buy a new book to read is a joy we would gladly experience all over again. Even as adults, there’s a heartfelt feeling of being able to just browse through rows upon rows of books. And this June, we get to experience that feeling again with the return of the Big Bad Wolf sale in the Philippines.

Running from today until July 3, the world’s biggest book sale opens its doors once more to bibliophiles and curious shoppers, and this time, Big Bad Wolf is returning to an onsite event for the first time since the pandemic. Ready to cop your next book? Then check out a few reasons why Big Bad Wolf 2023 is the place for your next budol.



This year, the Big Bad Wolf sale is going all out with a collection of over two million books from international and local publishers on offer. The organizers filled the 4,800 square meters of the PICC Forum Tent in Pasay with books as far as the eye can see. Once you step inside the tent, you’ll see the space divided into three main sections: fiction to the right of the main entrance, non-fiction in the middle, and children’s books to the left. Each section contains a grocery list worth of genres to check out, so, if you’re on the hunt for romance, sci-fi, horror, self-help, a cookbook, or more, you’ll find it at Big Bad Wolf 2023.


Big Bad Wolf prices

One aspect that makes the Big Bad Wolf sale so loved is how the prices go lower than Felix’s voice from Stray Kids. And this year is no exception, with discounts going as high as 95% and prices going as low as 20 pesos. This 2023, the organizers are implementing a universal price tagging system where, instead of seeing the price, you’ll see a letter code like A, B, C, etc. that is associated with a corresponding price. As for payment, they accept cash, debit card, credit card, and e-wallets.



With all the deals going on at the Big Bad Wolf 2023 book sale, you would think that would be enough. But the organizers prepared even more deals to get you rushing to Pasay. Before you enter the venue, it’s advised that you sign up for the free membership on the website app so that you’ll be eligible for exclusive offers and deals. Also, Metrobank cardholders get a special promo where they get 0% installment for purchases over 3,000 pesos for three months and 10% cashback when spending 5,000 pesos or more. There will also be exclusive payment lanes and a special lounge for Metrobank users. Talk about the VIP treatment.


morning to midnight

Everyone knows that reading never stops, no matter what time of day it is. This is why the Big Bad Wolf sale is making sure shoppers have enough time to get their budols. Until the end of the sale on July 3, it will run from 10 AM – 1 AM, which means shopping in the morning until midnight. 


Belle with books

FYI, the Big Bad Wolf sale 2023 is free admission. Need we say more? But if that and the two million books aren’t enough for you, the organizers have also prepared other activities to check out. Book readings, workshops, and contests will all be held during the sale as well as live performances from local artists so that you can have some tunes with your music. Also, if your tummy starts grumbling from all that shopping, food and drink stalls are at the premises.
