Bookworms have long lamented the expensive price of books in Malaysia, but with the return of Big Bad Wolf Books, it’s time once again to shop ourselves silly. This annual market offers millions of volumes at hugely discounted prices. The catch? You have to hunt for what you want.

Big Bad Wolf Books will set up base in the Mines Convention Centre this December with a sale running from 7 – 23 December. However, the opening weekend will begin with a staggering 63-hour continuous sale. That’s time to shop for books from 6.30am on Friday morning to 9.30pm on Sunday night. Insomniacs, rejoice.

If you are prepared to risk paper cuts and queues for getting your hands on books at a fraction of their normal retail price, then we suggest you start making your wishlist now by checking out some of the 3 million titles on offer. We also recommend this handy blog post by Newrulefarah, who offers tips and tricks for getting the most out of the market.
