A Colourful Read
Welcome to A Colourful Read!
We are a locally owned & operated business (formerly called Warrina Book Exchange). Our store is located at Shop 9, 260-262 Charters Towers Road, Hermit Park, Townsville. We are open Monday to Saturday.
New, Secondhand Books and Book Exchange
We sell & exchange a large range of good quality second-hand books across all popular genres.
All books are on our computer database so please don’t hesitate to give us a call to check if the book you would like is in stock. If we don’t have it we can keep your details & contact you when it becomes available or we can order it in for you.
Our full priced books can be returned once you have finished with them & we will give you half of the purchase price back in store credit towards your next purchase. Of course you can keep them if you wish – it’s your choice.
If you’re looking for a bargain, there’s always one to be found on our racks of discounted non-returnable books, perfect for holiday reading.
We also have new books by some wonderful local authors, as well as art by talented Townsville artists.
Not just a regular bookstore!
If you & your loved ones are not readers we have a range of gifts available or you can purchase a gift voucher for use at a later date.
At A Colourful Read we have gradually added to our collection of local artwork to now include a wide range of beautiful, high quality crystals and gemstones, jewellery, candles, incense and much more!
Don’t trek all over Townsville when the perfect gift is waiting for you right here at A Colourful Read! We have items to suit just about everybody, and finish your gift with one of our beautiful greeting cards.
Come and see us soon!
We would love you to visit us in store but if you can’t we are more than happy to take your order over the phone or via email or Facebook & mail it to you.
