IR: How do you keep the prices so low?
AY: More than just a mere book sale, Big Bad Wolf Books is a global reading advocacy programme, one with the expressed mission to cultivate the reading habit around the world.
With this approach to creating awareness, the World’s Biggest Book Sale aims to inspire people to chase their dreams and, additionally, empower them with knowledge. This is made possible due to the large volume of books which is printed in huge quantities to enables us to bring costs down.
We also access a vast collection of books directly from publishers from around the world that are unsold copies or designated as overprinted books, which give us the leverage to keep our prices low. This is key because it enables our consumers to buy affordable books at a fraction of the price that it is usually retailed at.

AY: We aim to build a new generation of readers by offering affordable books within their reach by opening more bookstores and hosting book sales such as our Big Bad Wolf Book Sale.
Our goal is to introduce books to the younger generation by being present everywhere and making them easily accessible to buy them and, more importantly, gain knowledge and be inspired.

AY: Delivery may vary within 10 to 15 business days after the order has been placed successfully and payment has been confirmed. All delivery times quoted are mere estimates based on the availability and standard processing of the delivery company responsible for delivering the books.
IR: Do you expect more customers this year? What was the figure last year?
AY: Last year was Big Bad Wolf Books’ first endeavour into Singapore via our online platform rather than our usual physical event. We had low expectations, but the response surpassed it.
We received a lot of comments that were very positive and encouraging us to return this year. So, we’re anticipating an even better response this time around and hope to attract more buyers to our Online Sale as the discounts offered are too good to be missed.
