Last update: 20/12/2018

KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 20 (Bernama) -- The Big Bad Wolf Book Sale Kuala Lumpur ended with a bang, drawing over 500,000 people to the MINES International Exhibition & Convention Centre (MIECC).

The Big Bad Wolf Book Sale Kuala Lumpur partnered with Astro Kasih Knowledge Zone this year through its Corporate Social Responsibility arm, the Red Readerhood Programme, where the members of the public were encouraged to donate books to underprivileged children.

A total of 1,000 books were donated to the cause, with 16,376 books collected throughout the 11-day book sale, benefitting 3,000 children from 29 charity homes nationwide.

“As our aim is to always create platforms for books to be accessible and affordable for all, we hope to conquer more cities and countries in the coming years as we want to rekindle the joy of reading because reading can create opportunities for people to be inspired and empower them to dream bigger," said Founder of Big Bad Wolf Books, Andrew Yap in a statement.

Leading up to its 10th Anniversary Sale in 2019, the Big Bad Wolf Book Sale will be going to 10 states in Malaysia such as Pahang, Johor, Sarawak, Melaka and finally back to Kuala Lumpur to celebrate its 10th year Anniversary Sale in December.


“In 2019, we will be spreading our wings to more states in Malaysia to allow affordable books to be accessible by more Malaysians as home is where we begin from,” added Yap.

The Big Bad Wolf Book Sale started in 2009 and has travelled to six countries aside from Malaysia such as Thailand, Indonesia, the Philippines, Sri Lanka, Taiwan and United Arab Emirates with 16 cities in total throughout the year and has impacted at least 3 million lives positively by providing accessibility to affordable books while spreading the love for reading.

Aiming to change the world, one book at a time, the Sale intends to be in 45 different cities by next year and aims to be in 100 cities by 2020.
