Sunday Musings #22: One about the world’s largest book sale

Sale

What can make a bookworm happier than a book sale? A bigger book sale! 

The Big Bad Wolf Book Sale is here at DubaiDubai being Dubai, it definitely has to be the world’s largest book sale. Obviously! We don’t do anything normally. 

Sale

There are 3 million books for sale and it is open 24 hours a day for 11 days. To quote an organiser, “if all of the books on sale in Dubai during the coming 11 days were stacked on top of each other (taking the average book thickness), it would reach a height 48 times taller than the Burj Khalifa (the world’s tallest building”.

Anyway today is the last of the book sale, and I still haven’t had time to go there. But I have some fabulous friends who shared pictures from their visit and I got some from the internet, just to show how massive it actually is.

I might still visit for a quick haul later today, fingers crossed.

What I read this week:

I finished the books from yester-weeks, I have no idea why I left them half way to jump on to other books. Anyway I am done now with the following:

        

I am fully focusing on completing my goals towards A-Z reading challenge 2018. Looks like I might reach it, surprisingly.

What I watched this week:

I spent quite a lot of time on Netflix this week, totally unsurprising I know.

  • I gave in and watched ‘The Haunting of a Hill house’ before reading the book, quite unlike me. I am over the guilt because I FREAKING LOVED IT and I am thankful that it didn’t have those jump scares.
  • I watched The good place – season 1 and I didn’t see the ending coming at all. I liked it!
  • I completed watching Jane the Virgin Season 4 and I was not expecting that season finale cliffhanger. I knew there was a cliffhanger coming on, but just not THAT!!!!

On the blog

If you had missed any of the posts on my blog this week, here is a quick recap. 

My week started out with Sunday Musings#21: One with ‘the fall is here’ shout out .

                       

I reviewed one of my favorite books I read in 2018 on Monday Cobalt blue by Sachin Kundalkar.                                                                        

                       Cobalt Blue

We had a discussion post five elements that we look out for in an author’s website on Wednesday.

                       Elements

To change up the gear I read a few children books and listed them here on A raccoon, a chicken house, and trotters of Tweeville – Reading Children’s books.

  1. Wow. 3 million books! A bookworm could get lost in all that, haha. It’s almost like a mini library of sorts, only for sale. Unfortunate that you couldn’t go though! Perhaps there’s another chance maybe? I really hope you do get the chance one day since it sounds fun.

  2. That sale is so massive!! I’d love to be surrounded by that many books!

    I love The Good Place! I’m currently watching season 4 (I think that is the current season playing on TV) and it’s amazing! So many twists and turns!
    Have a great week! 🙂

    • I have just watched the season 1 and that is the only one available on Netflix. I will have to stream in other season soon.

  3. I like these kinds of sales. Wow, that is very impressive, just looking at all those books! I like this more than author signings, which btw, we never get in Canada.

  4. OMG!!! I love book sales!! And that one sounds amazing. To bad, Dubai isn’t close. LOL!
    I didn’t love the first episode of The Haunting of Hill House. But I kept watching and I looooove it now!! I haven’t read the book either, but I must now!

  5. Oh wow that is a bok sale! I loved Young Jane Young – hope you enjoy it. The Good Place is great. That first season was so smart. Have a great week!

  6. I took Sophie’s quiz and am a poltergeist too. We shall haunt! LOL That book sale looks amazing. I’d be broke for a month if I went. We have a local one here. Not near as big but you pay by the inch. My stacks, when measured, should be by the foot. LOL

  7. Lol 3 million books. That’s like a book for every person in my country. And then some. 😀 sounds awesome. It’s too bad you didn’t get to go! Although I feel like I would go crazy, cause how would I even be able to choose?? I’d want everything xD

    Ooh, I also have Young Jane Young, but haven’t read it yet. You’re going to have to tell me if it’s any good 🙂
