A notable spike occurred in 2017, when the event welcomed 720,000 shoppers, twice as many as in the preceding year, with more than 40,000 visitors daily leading to long queues during busy hours.
The event offers a wide selection of books, from novels to nonfiction, poetry, Indonesian language titles, as well as children's books. (liz/mut)
