During Kris Kringle, give the gift of books from the section dedicated to Christmas titles for adults and children alike. In the Victorian Christmas classic, ‘A Christmas Carol’, Ebenezer Scrooge is a mean-spirited miser in but his journey with three spirits will change him forever. Go for beautifully illustrated pop-up books such as ‘Jingle Bells: A Magical Pop-up Edition’ that can double as display pieces during pasko and for some holiday romance, you can’t go wrong with some Nora Roberts’ ‘Christmas in the Snow’.

With over 1 million books available at the Sale, bibliophiles will be spoilt for choice with the genres at hand. Non-fiction books galore await with everything from Craft & Hobbies, Architecture & Design to Cooking. Why not prepare an amazing spread for Noche Buena with some books on cooking like ‘The Little Pasta Cookbook: Favourite Recipes from an Italian Garden’ or ‘Simply Nigella: Feel Good Food’. There’s also nothing better than curling up with a good thriller like ‘The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest’ or going for a read like ‘Crazy Rich Asians’ for a good dose of romance and comedy. In the brilliantly illustrated volume of ‘Percy Jackson’s Greek Heroes’, Rick Riordan’s legion of fans can step into the world of Greek mythology. The greatest story ever told unfolds through colorful depictions in the ‘Illustrated Family Bible’ that is a special keepsake that can be cherished for years to come.

At the Big Bad Wolf Book Sale, you don’t have to wait for Santa to visit as books are offered at 50% to 90% off recommended retail price.
