2. First come first serve. Finders keepers. The earlier you go, the higher your chances of getting first dibs of the books you want.

3. Prepare yourself mentally. If you are thinking of getting only 3 books, you might actually leave with 13 books instead.

4. The organisers do not provide shopping baskets for you while you browse for books. Bring your own shopping bag to haul those books around, you will need it.

5. A bag with wheels, like a suitcase or a trolley, works best. Your arms will thank you.

8. Pace yourself, there will be 3 million books and it can get overwhelming. The books will be arranged by genre, take your time to browse through the books by picking your favourite genre first.

9. This is the best time to buy books you could never afford. Bring a checklist of books you want to get. But be prepared that it might not be available during the sale.
