Bookworms get ready because the Big Bad Wolf is back in town…

The biggest book sale in the world, the Big Bad Wolf is coming back to UAE, and for the very first time, the event will take place online with amazing deals that will blow bibliophiles away. 

The Big Bad Wolf Sharjah by Sharjah Book Authority began on January 23 and was originally supposed to be for just three days. Now, however, it will run until January 30 giving you plenty of time to stock up for the rest of the year. They also make a great gift for your book-loving friends.

Scroll and add to cart to your heart’s content and bag books as low as Dhs4.99. Some golden finds will mean you will receive up to 90 per cent off. Now, that’s major saving right there.  

The event in the past has featured no less than three million books all available at a discounted rate, and while the majority of the books at this Big Bad Wolf sale will be English, there is a section for those who read Arabic too. Nonetheless, we still imagine lovers of the written word will be scrolling for hours on end.

Expect genres of all kind from fiction to horror, drama and more. There are even recipe books for the chefs and home-cooks and journals that can be purchased.

Happy scrolling!
