Hey there book lovers!
The wolf has arrived in the UAE! Bringing us 3 million books to devour on. :) On Oct 18 to 28, Big Bad Wolf Books visits Dubai (UAE) at Dubai Studio City – Sound Stage Venue inside MBC building!
Sounds exciting right? Well, that excitement leveled up when I found myself winning a VIP Day pass giveaway! :D
* * *
Now, let me share a few pros and cons in this experience:
- Open 24 hours!!!
- Entrance is FREE!
- We’re the first of the many people who could get the first dibs of these amazing books. I guess they’ve given 1000 VIP Pass. But the place wasn’t full packed when we arrived, we were there around 8:30/9 PM.
- They have an offer to share your blessings by donating on site. More details can be taken on the site itself. This caught my attention, because every time someone shares his/her blessing the whole crew claps their hands.
- Membership booth is available, where in you can get further discounts on some of the books.
- 50-80% Off on all book! Made me excited to see a Paulo Coelho book pack of 8 is only at 165 AED!!! OMG!!!
- Accepts Cash, Debit & Credit card!
- Books looked less than 3M. Or maybe because it’s just a pre-opening… The customer service said that more books are still on the way.
- The books I wished to get were not on the list. But at least I get one that is really on my priority – that’s Gretchen Rubin’s The Happiness Project
- Personally, I don’t find the rows and arrangement properly set-up. I had a hard time navigating one stall to the other because it seemed un properly arranged. Well, I’m giving them benefit of the doubt since it’s just the pre-opening. Hope they’ll manage to make it better.
- Venue is a bit far, the good news is, you can still reach by metro, then taxi or bus. :D Stop @ Mall of Emirates metro – Ride Bus F30.
Anyway, I still have 10 days to check the book haven more. Let me update this post by then! :)
