Book database hits 200!

By Mr.Bordsenius at 2001-01-05

Our petanque-book database has just reached a new level - more than 200 books are registered. And most of these are presented with a picture of the cover.

Jac Verheul has done a lot of work lately, and the books-database has reached an impressive size. At this moment there are 207 titles in the database.
It covers all alspects of petanque, as well as several related sports such as Jeu Provencal, Boule de fort, Boule bretonne, Boule de parisienne, English bowl etc.

Most of the books also include a snapshot of the cover. Jac is currently working with Mike Pegg in order to write a short description of all the books, some of them are already done!.

So have a look at The books database
