Two million books, at up to 80 percent off – welcome to the biggest book sale in the world
The biggest book sale is now in the Philippines, with 2 million books available at 60 to 80 percent off.
At its preview day on February 15, the book sale was already crowded with people trying to get the first pick on the books available, with many pushing shopping carts filled with their loot. There was even an area where visitors could park their full carts and get a new one to maximize their stay at the sale.
Part of the proceeds from the book sale will be donated to Gawad Kalinga (GK), which helped bring the book sale to the Philippines. The donations will fund GK projects like housing in Marawi and Bicol.
At the preview day, GK's Luis Oquiñena said that the Big Bad Wolf Book Sale will be an annual event from here on out, and that they hope to bring it to other parts of the Philippines as well.
