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. When you buy a book below, a small proportion of the price goes to support our work.

Thank you from the Broadway Team.


A world of choice, a world of ideas…

The Bobbler has an on-line ‘bookshop‘, which is built from 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 – just like any other national/international bookseller. Brilliant!
