Big Bad Wolf Books Sale Kuala Lumpur 2018 2nd Trip

We have been hunting with the Wolf for a decade now. Previous was just a regular customer and in the recent years, we were fortunate to get preview passes. 

Mamarazzi still remember what Mr Wolf said in the early years. He said , many customers that come for the first trip will definitely return again for a second or third hunt. 

Yup.. based on our experience, one trip is never enough as Mr Wolf and his crews would replenish the floor with new titles frequently. No tables are left empty. 


We went for our second hunt last Thursday. Why Thursday? Coz it's exactly 1 week after the Preview Day. The venue would be flooded with new titles again . Books that are different from the Preview Days.  

True enough. Gosh... wish Mamarazzi had allocated more hours there. Four hours are not enough to go through all the sections. Only managed to browse Fiction and some parts of children books. 

This round, Mamarazzi zoom for her books while I am left hunting on my own. 


I found the Minecraft book that I wanted, 

And more Minecraft books


And Mr Wolf had saved 4 Minecraft books for me after an S.O.S from Mamarazzi. I have been searching for the Red Diamond book for a long time. Thank you Mr Wolf and Marcus.

On Preview Day Mamarazzi bought some Chinese comic books for me. I found that I like them very much. So I went and pick up some more. Came home, Mamarazzi asked why I only took five. I said expensive ah...but she said it's dirt cheap at RM1.50 each. Should have taken more.

After reading about LAST CALL TABLE from KLBAC FB, Mamarazzi zoomed to the table. Sure enough. There are plenty of good books from RM3 to RM8.

She found these book at the LAST CALL TABLE . RM8 each only. 


RM6 magazine also found there. Too bad no more Nat Geo.

Instead , she bought this for me. This type of magazine usually is very expensive.


Then she went hunting at the fiction section. Found two more books for her reads.Yummy yummy.

While walking towards the children section, she spotted these at the BBW Members counter. 

Yes, BBW Members gets extra discount.  She took them for me while sending out Whatsapps to her gang. They wanted these books too but when Mamarazzi went back to the counter, the LEGO Official Annual 2018 fully sold off. Only left Ninjago.

Aisey! lesson learnt. Next time must grab a few sets first before WhatsApps friends. huh huh huh, 


From the children section, she found these for me. Yay! now i have the complete set of the Robots books.

From the children section, Mamarazzi found this book. She wanted it for herself

This is because not only the stories are good but the illustration was beautiful too. 


This round, we only managed to get two graphic novel. 



Helped friends to do some book hunting too. 

Well, after getting food for the brain...it's time for food for the body. I can eat the whole lot. Famished.

Harvested some mangoes yesterday. Mamarazzi is making mango pickles to eat while reading our BBWKL2018 haul. 

Hey! she finished 2 of the BBW books already. One of them is KL Nior White. She said it's very good. Very dark and dangerous. Definitely for those 18 years old and above. Hoping to get the other 3 books of this series.

Hmmmm... I wonder whether we shall go for the 3rd and final hunt on Monday. Yup... it's the last 3 days of the BBWKL2018 sale. Better head over too MIECC while you can.  Yesterday the Wolf announced that they have re-stocked.There will be a whole lot of delicious books waiting for your this weekend at MIECC.

  4. Wow! You have been very busy at the book sale. I read a lot so I am happy to see another person who loves to read. I have requested the book from the library that you suggested. The one called, Sweet Bean Paste. The library has ordered it but it will still be a few months before I can get my hands on a copy to read.
