According to Muhammad Azli, the organisation of BBW 2020 was the second time after an overwhelming response last year.
“The response from the first day has been very encouraging when visitors began to pour in as early as 9.00 am.,” he said.
He hopes that the community can grab the chances to visit this sale with families as there are many book selections for children and adults with reasonable discounts.
