Big Bad Wolf Books Sale 2012 Sneak Peek!

Mamarazzi have been monitoring Big Bad Wolf Books Facebook ever since Big Bad Wolf woke up from hibernation somewhere in July this year. It was so exciting! This will be the WORLD BIGGEST BOOKS SALE of the year.

Big Bad Wolf Books have been organising Contests giving Preview Passes since August through their Facebook and http://bigbadwolfbooks.com/. Mamarazzi have been trying her luck to win a Preview Pass through the contests with no success.

Lucky, for Mamarazzi as she managed to secure a Preview Pass in the end. Special Thanks to Andrew and Jacqueline for the invite to the Preview.

If you are not a Fan of theirs by now, do hop over and LIKE their Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/bbwbooks   to get news of their activities. Maybe, next year you'll be one of the Lucky Preview Passes Winners.

Just imagine Mamarazzi heart thumping at the exhilaration when she saw these photos being uploaded to BBWBS Facebook since Monday.

Books were coming in by lorries full and cranes were at work.

Can you see how large is the hall? 9am walk till 9pm also, won't be able to finish scouting for books.

Lina...come morning jogging here la. Friday they are going to open 6.30am!

This is just the NON-Fiction area.

Mamarzzi had marked this spot as MUST GO. It's CHILDREN Books section!

 This is another area where Mamarazzi MUST visit . Gosh ....rows and rows of DELICIOUS books.

Aiyo....what section is this ah? Mamarazzi is drooling to the max already! 


Found this Super-short sale survival sheet in BBW Facebook :
Bring  
BBW says : Your own bags/boxes, a list of wanted books...and a great attitude!
Mad Mamarazzi says : will sure bring a trolley luggage bag
 
Wear
BBW says : Light, loose comfortable clothing and shoes
Mad Mamarazzi says : Light doesn't mean bikini, ok. Ever heard of "stellitos a girls best friend and awesome fashionable weapon". Well, it won't work here. Don't you dare to kill the BIG BAD WOLF! 

Come 
BBW says :Early, or later in the day (peak hours are usually between 10 am - 3 pm)
Mad Mamarazzi says : Am thinking of joining the 63 hours non stop shopping fun by going second round at 3am.....

 Plan
 BBW says : Your budget, and your optimum route through the sale!
Mad Mamarazzi says : Budget? Hmmm....remember your new year resolutions? did it work?

Avoid 
BBW says : Bringing very young children, crowding the aisles, and overloading on books!

Mad Mamarazzi says : That's why Mamarazzi said not going to bring me along coz I would kacau her book hunting.  Overloading on books? Books can never be enough!




I bet Mamarazzi won't be able to sleep tonight lor. Looking forward to tomorrow's preview. But for me, I will sleep kao kao so that I can go gai-gai with tomorrow. Hopefully, Mamarazzi wil get a whole load of books for me

  2. Preview, on invitation only, right? Other people can go? Mines, right? Smallkucing and Papakucing can book a room at the luxurious Palace of the Golden Horses, enjoy kau-kau while Mamakuching suffers struggling with all the books she buys.
