If you're looking to stock up on books for summer reading, this week is the perfect time. A Charlottesville organization is hosting a book sale to benefit community programming, and many of the books cost less than $1.

Thousands of new and used books, audiobooks, CDs, DVDs and video games will be sold Thursday through the weekend.

All proceeds benefit Charlottesville's Writer House.

Writer House is a community space, open to the public. There are classes, workshops and resources for writing and publishing hosted there.

This week's book sale features all types of genres from fiction and nonfiction to essays and poetry. Several of the smaller books are going for just 25 cents, larger paperbacks are going for $1, hardcover books and CDs are $2 and DVDs are just $3.

All proceeds go to Writer House programming.

"Writer house is a brilliant community. I'm a writer and I love coming here to a place where it's quiet, where you're with other people who understand the value of writing, who want to be here to write," said Stephanie Morris, the book sale coordinator.

The Writer House will also be collecting donated books, CDs, audiobooks and DVDs. You can bring them in during open hours.

The book sale is Thursday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Sunday is a $5 bag day where you can fill up a paper bag for only $5.
