Of course, care should be taken to refrain from contributing books that touch on sensitive issues, lest the topics offend. Books may be dropped off from now till the 9th Dec 2018 at the POPULAR Mega Bookfair @ PCC itself. Every minimum contribution of 10 books shall be rewarded with a RM10 POPULAR voucher.
