Big Bad Wolf Books Sale is now happening at MIECC if you haven’t know yet. It has became talk of the town especially their operating for 63 hours non-stop during the first 3 days of the sales from 6.30am on 7 December til 9.30pm on 9 December.

Event details
Venue: Mines International Exhibition Convention Centre (MIECC)
Date: 7 – 23 December 2012
Time: 9am – 9pm

I went there at 3pm but the road was very congested and it’s not easy to find parking. It’s better to go either very early in the morning or after 5pm cos I left at 5pm yesterday and the place has already cleared up.

Big Bad Wolf Books Sale 2012 @ MIECC 2

There were a lot people but due to the large area, it doesn’t feel crowded. It’s crowded by 3 million books though!!! Afterall, it’s The World’s Biggest Book Sale! 😀

Buying boxes of books?!
Buying boxes of books?!

Many people came with luggage bags, paper boxes and recycle bags to reduce the use of plastic bags! A good move indeed! I also brought my own recycle bag =)

So what books and how many boxes did I bought? I’m sure I’ll get laughed at… I only bought 3. Total of RM 26 only. Why I bought so less? Cos bf keep nagging me and say I wouldn’t have the time to read it even though I buy a lot and he doesn’t wanna buy any reference books cos he can always Google it. But the truth is, he never did.

Since bf doesn't wanna read, I read and be a man lor

    I've watched the Big Bag Wolf Sale grow up from a small one back when I started working in KL in 2009 to the huge one now. Great discounts, I like that it encourages people to read. 😀

    Didn't buy that many myself – getting too much to carry and there wasn't much there that I wanted to read or haven't already read, like say, Superfreakonomics.

    I went there also, on last saturday afternoon. (Thank god I didn't join the midnight madness, turned out everyone went for it and got so crowded)
    Bought 24 books for RM228 only! Freaking cheap.
    Bf also said that I'll never have the time to finish them. Well, I'm going to challenge that!
    And even if I really can't finish it, there's always another year. Who says books expire?

    Didn't see the "Man Up" book, else I'll buy for my friend. 😛
