Tri­umph at trivia and win

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - Reads - Last year’s Pop­u­lar Quiz Show au­di­ence hav­ing fun (and win­ning books!). — Pop­u­lar

THE theme of this year’s Book­Fest@Malaysia is “Read More, Malaysia ... Em­brace The World”, so the event’s or­gan­iser is de­ter­mined to get books into as many hands as pos­si­ble. Pop­u­lar Book Co (M) Sdn

Bhd is do­ing that not only by of­fer­ing deep discounts on thou­sands of books at the fest but also by giv­ing Book­Fest vis­i­tors the chance to win free books.

Yes, folks, the Pop­u­lar Quiz Show is back!

Last year’s par­tic­i­pants had fun with ques­tions like “what’s the name of the Mar­vel su­per­hero with spi­der pow­ers?” and “who in­vented the tele­phone?” (can you guess which gen­er­a­tion an­swered which of those two ques­tions?!).

There were also ques­tions about the Book­Fest it­self, so stay sharp and ob­serve ev­ery­thing around you this year to fig­ure out an­swers.

Apart from the usual prizes of free books, there are also gift vouch­ers worth RM200 to be won – and if no­body an­swers cor­rectly, the vouch­ers snow­ball, and will con­tinue to do so ev­ery day, un­til some­one gets it right. A chance to get some nice bounty here!

The quizzing be­gins to­mor­row with the open­ing of Book­Fest 2017 and con­tin­ues daily un­til its last day, July 2; get to Hall 5 of the Kuala Lumpur Con­ven­tion Cen­tre ev­ery day between 8pm and 8.45pm if you want to par­tic­i­pate. Be­fore you can an­swer any ques­tions, though, you’ll be asked for a pass­word, which you can find at the Book­Fest@ Malaysia Face­book page (face­ BookFestMalaysia). A new pass­word will go up daily, posted at ran­dom times dur­ing the day, so be sure to check the page of­ten.

Star2 read­ers will have an ex­tra edge: to­mor­row and on Sun­day, there will be spe­cial coupons printed in our pages; cut them out (no pho­to­copies, please!) and present them on those days to get the chance to be picked to par­tic­i­pate ahead of those with­out coupons.

Now go on, go brush up on your trivia knowl­edge!

Book­Fest@Malaysia 2017 will be on daily, from 10am to 10pm, from to­mor­row to July 2 at the Kuala Lumpur Con­ven­tion Cen­tre.
