For some reason, my blog traffic ballooned during BBW season every year…. and I’ve been talking about it since my second year university. days…  oh well.

Yes, I was there yesterday. Apparently, everyone like my old blog post on how to get to MIECC on foot… and one person actually followed me there. Except its morning, and the door to the center was locked.

And I’m not amused….

Its the normal Big Bad Wolf sale…. -____-

Which means, stacks of same books in one table.

I rant a lot about this yesterday and I know you read my blog, Big Bad Wolf people but have you seen bookstores that put out ALL their stock on one table? As in 100 copies of the same book in one table? I know the venue got bigger since 2012 but seriously? If you have people manning the table, you don’t need to stick mountains of same books in a limited space…. and don’t stuck all single random copies books under the table.

I guess, I’m still pissed that I didn’t get a single scifi book… or Mass Effect books.. sigh

Multiple copies of Halo, Star Trek and Star Wars doesn’t make them the representative of Scifi genre. At least I hardly see Tolkien books hoarding the tables this time..

And I guess its an improvement to see there’s extra side table for literature and SFF section but… I’m amazed that the Romance section dominated the Fiction section…. I saw some paranormal romance in that area too but most of them was chic lits and contemporaries… must be overprinted stuff.

I miss out on last year’s aftermath/fire sale because Suria was in town but I went to the later Box Sale and the fantasy/scifi section was a treasure trove. But on 2013, I got nice random stuff during the Firesale. It was a joy to scan each titles to find them.

Sigh… I guess I have to make do with mostly fantasy books. At least they’re cheap and I get nice lunch afterwards because I don’t splurge too much.

And I think I’ve contributed to mainstreaming of this sale…… this is the first time I saw a huge morning crowd during a firesale and I’ve been to a almost every BBW’s firesale… Holiday huh?
