Remember Big Bad Wolf, the Malaysian book fair that had a Manila stop last year? Well, it’s back at the same venue (World Trade Center in Pasay City) and once again open 24 hours until March 4. And yes, it still offers huge discounts on a wide variety of books—50% to 90%, according to the organizers.

We went for a visit the other night and saw that there were more motoring reading materials available to erudite petrolheads.
