Bookworms will get another taste of the world’s biggest book sale with the help of a popular e-commerce platform.
based in Malaysia Big Bad Wolf Books announced Thursday that its deliveries to the Philippines will be faster following the launch of its flagship store in Lazada.
He also encouraged readers to ‘add to cart’ their favorite books and then check them out on Fridays, in time for the Black friday sale which offers discounts of up to 95%.
The Black Friday sale refers to the Friday after Thanksgiving Day in the United States. It traditionally marks the start of the Christmas shopping season in the United States, with products sold at heavily discounted prices.
The book sale’s Facebook page had previously hinted that it would be “back” in the Philippines by letting Filipinos guess where they would end up next through a crossword puzzle. The art card also included a graphic of Manila City Hall and a traditional jeepney.
He also dropped another clue when he shared a graphic of a tricycle full of books and a sari-sari shop, with the caption “How often do we see from now on, yes?”
In the comments section, a Facebook user shared that she had received packages from the book sale.
The Big Bad Wolf Books account acknowledged his comment and told him to “stay tuned.”
“We will be launching our new shopping platform soon! Stay tuned, wolfie! he has answered.
The Big Bad Wolf book sale took place virtually in the country last July.
It is billed as the world’s largest book sale community, where people can get books as low as P10.
Its founders said the book sale sought to attract non-readers and make reading materials affordable in order to promote a broad reading and literacy culture.
