The world's biggest book sale Big Bad Wolf is back in Manila, and doors will be open 24 hours from February 14 to February 24.
Here are a few things you need to know about this year's bookhunting bonanza at the World Trade Center:
Admission is totally free!
Big Bad Wolf's whole thing is encouraging people of all ages to discover the joys of affordable and accessible reading.
Bring your own eco bag
Big Bad Wolf is going for an environment-friendly book sale this year, so they won't be providing plastic bags for your book haul.
It runs 24 hours for 11 days
The event's got 2 million of books to sell, so patrons can pop in anytime for the next 10 days.
Wear a mask
With the threat of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in the country, Big Bad Wolf organizers said they will be taking additional safety precautions throughout the 10-day sale.
Visitors have been encouraged to wear masks. There are also temperature-taking and hand sanitizing stations at the entrance.

There's a 'crazy deals' promotion
For it's third edition in Manila, Big Bad Wolf introduced a special promo which offers further markdowns. If you look hard enough, there are some books that cost as low as P60!
You can win vouchers for free books!
Bookhunters who come this year will get the chance to win a grand prize of an entire trolley stuffed with books! Other prizes like cash vouchers are also up for grabs, so keep your eyes peeled for these contest instructions around the sale.
There's a 'really decent' section
A few people were got a hoot out of this sign that really just referred to a section of books for children. If you've got very young kids, stop by!
Some proceeds go to Taal
After the devastating eruption of Taal volcano last month, Big Bad Wolf has pledged 1000 books to its long-standing partner Gawad Kalinga. Organizers said the collected books will be distributed to affected communities in Taal, as well as some communities and public schools in Mindoro.
