Big Bad Wolf book sale to be held in Myanmar in Jan

DSC 0012 72The world’s largest book sale, Big Bad Wolf, will be held for the third time in Myanmar at the Fortune Plaza, Thakayta Township, Yangon.
The sale will be held from 10 to 20 January. Over 1 million brand new English books will be on sale at a special discount of 50 per cent to 90 per cent. Folk tales, quizzes, thick books, coloring books, comics, and books on cooperative learning will also be available for kids at the sale. The sale will take place from 9 am to 12 midnight each day.
The director of Ready 2 Read Myanmar U Myo Aung, who is organizing the sale, said: “I decided to hold the book sale in Yangon for the second time because the book sales in Yangon and Mandalay held early this year were very successful. There were 250,000 people who came to the sales in Yangon and Mandalay.”
The sale aims to increase the reading appetite of people and to aid the developing culture of reading in Myanmar, he said.
Some books from the sale will be donated to pubic and school libraries, along with Save the Library Organization. —Aye Min Thu, Moe Myint Maung (Translated by Bahtoo)
