There are pop-ups, activity books, and your regular story types strewn everywhere. Recently, I went to the Big, Bad Wolf book fair here in Dubai. But as a trash slowly trying to pick me up, alas.

Held at Dubai Studio City soundstages two and three, the event offers free entry on all 11 days. In truth, my hand was forced slightly, when I was gifted a Kobo by a loved one.

Some of my favourite books have been slow burners, and if I had the option of millions of other titles at my fingertips, without the physical version sitting by my bed, egging me on, would I have persevered? The Big Bad Wolf Book Fair, dubbed as the biggest book sale in the world, lands in Dubai and will offer as big as 50 to 80 percent book discounts to shoppers! Founder Andrew Yap said he expects the sheer number of books will lure in punters. We are like a traveling circus, you know.

Without giving the specifics of the partnership, Yap says part of the proceeds of the Philippine leg of the book fair will go to the projects of Gawad Kalinga in disaster-torn Marawi and Albay.
