Mr. Surachet Worawongwasu, Managing Director of Ready2Read Co., Ltd., the organizer of the Big Bad Wolf Book Sale Bangkok 2016, said: “We realize the importance of improving English skills through reading, especially in English. Given that Big Bad Wolf is considered to be the biggest book sale in the world, we decided to bring the event to Thailand because we believe that it will provide enormous benefits for Thai people. And we have chosen IMPACT as the venue because it is the perfect place equipped with integrated facilities which is able to accommodate a large number of visitors as this event is expected to draw up to 200,000 visitors during the 10-day run.
What makes Big Bad Wolf Book Sale Bangkok 2016 so special is that in addition to 2 million copies of quality books, they are all brand new and, more importantly, offer 60-80% off the cover price. Additionally, some of them are limited edition. Over 90% of the books are in English while the remaining 10% are translated books. Another highlight of the event is 60 hours of non-stop sale on the weekends – August 12 – 14 and August 19 – 21, giving people more time to browse and buy the books they want. The remainder of the event is open from 10.00 a.m. to 10.00 p.m. daily.
Mr. Paul added: “Although this is the debut of Big Bad Wolf in Thailand, I believe that it will be a huge success. IMPACT also takes this opportunity to donate 500,000 baht to support the purchase of English-language books to be contributed to seven schools in Nonthaburi province including Suankularb Wittayalai Nonthaburi School, Nawaminthrachinuthit Horwang Nonthaburi School, Pakkred Secondary School, Wat Bo School, Wat Ku School, Nanthapiwat Wittaya School, Potinimit Wiitayakom School, and Phasukmaneejak School, in an effort to promote English learning among Thai children and youth and encourage them to improve their English language skills.”
