Big Bad Wolf Books Sale 2018 on Preview Day

Thanks again to Mr Wolf for the preview passes so that me and my friends can go for the preview. I had a great time there.

This round, Mamarazzi assign me as the photographer as her phone had gone wonky(anyone wanna sponsor her a new phone? ). It tend to overheat whenever camera function is used or it suka-suka go on and off.

This year the Wolf brought home a whole load of Children books for the preview day. Mamarazzi had gone crazy looking at those books . Most are too young for me but luckily there is a friend who just had a newborn grandchild.

She had fun hunting baby books for her friend. Aiyo! price dirt cheap!. Wish could buy everything in the house.

Mamarazzi feels that the fiction section had shrink but... the quality of book seems to be better that previous years. There are more updated and popular books to be found. They even have a WHOLE table of Harry Potter related books! Not that am crazy about  HP but Mamarazzi is.

Also they have Rick Riordan series. This RR chap seems to be pretty popular these days. Everyone are talking about him.

Aiks... I thought Roald Dahl only writes children books? wow.. so many titles for adult books. Mamarazzi was really tempted to buy but the she already read some of the titles.

Chinese section had expand too. Well... not that am keen on that.  Lucky Mamarazzi is "banana" . Or else she would grab a whole loads of Chinese books for me.

Well, she did tried to grab some for me but it got banned by me. Only a few got my green light. Yea... I don't like to read Chinese but...

Bahasa Melayu/Malaysia section had expand too. Many good quality books can be found there. I went one round there but it's not my cup of Milo. But Mamarazzi eyes were pretty big looking at those books.

Wow... magazine like Dewan pelajar, Dewan Siswa, Dewan Masyarakat is only RM10 a bundle of 12. Yea.. it's last year issue but hentam la.

Her eyes grown even bigger when she saw this. Who still remembers Master Q? Ahem... who is this Lao Fu Tze... ? Hmmm generation gap..

She grabbed a few for herself  me. Okay la... since it's comic. I will try to read la.

After one round of browsing. Mamarzzi walk one more round just in case something escaped her attention. True enough! She saw some Jie Jie promotion something called Augmented Reality books. What is that? It seems that we need to download Hippo Magic free Apps to our phone or tablets . Then scan the front cover of the book. When we turn the pages, the characters will come alive.

Okay okay ... it's hard to explain...maybe this video we  made will explain it better. Yea... Mamarazzi bought one home. Said can give to friend's kid for pressie but before that we "open" it to test.
The good thing about this book  is that you can read it as it is(without using the apps) or you can use the apps for a better reading experience.

According to the Jie Jie there, they have seven books - Three Little Pigs, The Velveteen Rabbit, Goldilocks and the 3 Bears, Little Red Riding Hood, The Night Before Christmas, Let's Learn Counting 123 and Let's Learn Alphabet ABC.

Mamarazzi search their website... Yikes! Original price was USD9.99. And BBW price is only RM15. So cheap! Way to go Mr Wolf!

Guys! Faster go and grab them!

Walk some more and found plenty of this and those  metal containers books. Saw many people taking whole trolley full of those. Might be for gift or maybe reseller?

This set nearly escape her attention as it was place at the very end of the non-fiction area. It's a harmonica set with neat carrying box and instruction on how to play it. Price? RM10 only!

Get your ear plugs on. Here I am trying out the harmonica set. 

This round really shopped till I drop lo.  We got caught at the rush hour jam. The queue for payment was nearly till the entrance.

Initially, Mamarazzi thought it's system down. But surprisingly the queue was moving quite fast. Only queue for about half an hour despite the long line. The supervisors at the cashiers were very efficient too in controlling the crowd.

The careful cashier also helped a lot.  No mistakes on scanning twice or stuffs like that. Bravo!

Enjoying my new book while waiting for Papa to come and fetch us. 

Here are some of the books that Mamarazzi grabbed for me 

Nice buy.  Nat Geo for kid only RM8. 

And some Chinese comic  for me. 

A Maths set... 

Earlier on I ask Mr Wolf help to hunt down Minecraft books for this BBW and HE DID! I found this with the help of the staffs. Later on Mamarazzi saw people posting of other Minecraft books. She is asking Mr Wolf' help to keep a copy for me and he said will do. Yipee! Thank you Mr Wolf.

This round, Mamarazzi grabbed more books for herself. Her second childhood. Bought a box set of Paddington for herself. She have yet to unwrap the set yet. Said sayang wor.  But she have unwrapped her Winnie the Pooh book. She said smell so nice. But I said smell like IKEA. This year , most of the books in BBW have been shrink wrapped. Nice. Prevent damage to the books. Hopefully people will less likely to steal toys from the books la.

The Santa piano book was so cheap. RM10 only . She cant help herself . Close both eyes and buy la.

Her friend found KL Noir for her. What a good find it is.  Ahah... finally Harry Potter at an affordable price.

She managed to find some of out of print Dik Cerdas for herself. What a good buy. 

Okay... signing off for now. Don't forget to go to Big Bad Wolf Books Sale at MIECC ya... it's on now till the 17th of December. Its open 24hours non stop.
