About Us

The BookBobbler is part of Broadway Social Enterprise in Burton on Trent, UK. We believe that community development and change come from shared knowledge, resources and access to ideas. Books play an important part in that journey for us.


A world of choice, a world of ideas…

The Bobbler has an on-line ‘bookshop‘, which is built out on the web services of uk.bookshop.org – you can discover how this makes a modest contribution to our work here, but also how you can support independent booksellers right across the UK.

Simply browse for a book from our carefully curated ‘lists’, create a login to uk.bookshop.org – and purchase securely. Your secure payment will be confirmed and your despatch notifications will track the journey of your new book. Brilliant!



Our latest specially curated lists are available below…


In it, fighting it, reflecting upon it
Community conversations, oral history and more
Our first reader requested curated list – enjoy!
Help to get through difficult times…
Fresh air and together activity whenever we can…
Good food, good value, good companionship…
Got an enterprise idea – Broadway SocEnt can help…
Everyone has an agenda – how to proceed?


We are pivoting the Bobbler to become our community, collaborative books, literacy and arts development project during 2021.

If you have a good idea for ‘book list’, or just read a great author or themed book for example, let us know and we’ll build a Bobbler ‘list’ just for you.

Watch this space and happy reading – The Bobbler is about!
