MAEPS: Big Bad Wolf 2011

The Big Bad Wolf 2011 has just started.  Last two days my brother, Kak Nurul and I went to the book fair.  Big Bad Wolf is yearly event and it is the biggest sale with so much discount to offer. This year, the book fair is taking place at MAEPS, Serdang.

My brother's idea was we going to the book fair in the morning on 1st day book sale. He somehow wanted to get some experience by doing so and... I,  this was my first time went to the Big Bad Wolf fest.  It was about 9.30 am on a Friday morning when we reached the book fair.  The line I had to stand in to enter the fair was cramped by people. At least a hundred people standing and waiting for the book fair to open. Some people were bringing along their baskets and some of them were bringing their trolleys. I waited outside patiently until the door is opened at 10 a.m.  We then had a warm welcome by the assistants fair.

Inside, there were wide open spaces as many books on table arranged with variety titles.  Surrounded by books, I saw many sections such as travel, arts & design, photography, coffee table books, history & politics, fiction, non-fiction, religion & new age, parenting, biography & memoirs, music & movies, mangga, graphic novel, literature & poetry, computer, self help, humor, pets & nature, sports & games, transporation, reference, architecture & home decor, business, travel and children section. I think every corner of the books were fair organized in the good way. In the book fair, you don't need to be worried if you didn't bring your bags along. There was a lot of boxes provided in here.  They do supply boxes to visitors for shopping books. I think you'll need at least one. Help yourself! If you do anything to ask for, feel free to ask sale assistants. Sale assistants are always available around every corner.

At 11.a.m,  my eyes catched more and more people were coming and this place were crowded by book lovers at everywhere. Seeing the crowds celebrate books and reading was something awesome! We spent a half an hour wandering around and browsing books. After that we have to rush to pick up my niece from school and get ready for Jumaat praying.
