You may have to wait a bit longer for that book haul…

Bibliophiles, two weeks ago we broke the news that the Big Bad Wolf Book Sale, the world’s biggest book sale was returning to Dubai over the Holy Month of Ramadan. It was set to take place this week from Friday, March 31 to April 9 but the Big Bad Wolf has just huffingly announced that it is being postponed due to unforeseen circumstances.

Thankfully, we don’t have to wait too long, as the book sale is only being postponed by one week. The new dates are Friday, April 7 and the sale will still be 10 days long, ending on Sunday, April 16.

The Big Bad Wolf has also confirmed that the sale will continue to take place at Sound Stages in Dubai Studio City.

The venue will be packed with over a whopping million different books spanning a number of genres and languages from English to Arabic, French and more. There will be plenty for children and adults alike from biographies, non-fiction, history, mystery, science fiction, and much more.

So, how much do the books cost?

If you’ve never been to a Big Bad Wolf book sale before, you need to know that the books are not expensive at all and in previous years, readers were able to bag books as low as Dhs4.99. So, yes you will definitely have to clear a space in your bookshelf for this one.

Even if you don’t read, this is probably the one event you need to go to purchase gifts for a friend who does love to read.

Top tip: Plan to spend a lot of time here, wear your running shoes, show up and get ready to be blown away!

The best news? There’s no entry fee, which means that’s more money you can spend on book purchases.
