Whaaaaawww the biggest event of the year is happening!!! Hellowww Big Bad Wolf Books 2016!!! Thank you for landing in our beloved country, Indonesia! I am one of the lucky person who got to see this event and buy some largely discounted great books for me and my kids. For you who still doubting whether or not you should go there. Believe me, you should. Books that normally priced above Rp 250.000 or about US$19 (US$1 = Rp 13.000) sold for Rp 70.000 or about US$5. I even found a lovely local book for kids priced Rp10.000 (less than US1). Crazy or what?
I highly recommend you to come after dusk or before dawn, unless you want to spend more time queueing and at the same time doubting whether you should go back to grab some more books while waiting or not.
As a matter of fact, The Big Bad Wolf management claimed to have a mission to increase our population interest in reading (http://www.jakartabookclub.com/2016/04/panduan-belanja-buku-di-big-bad-wolf.html). They have successfully held the same event in Malaysia for years, and now they plan to bring out the same euphoria in Indonesia. Come on empty all your containers Big Bad Wolf! As we will madly empty our pocket… 😁😁😁
