Apparently Snooki can not only read, but she can write too.
Gallery Books announced Wednesday that Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi, of Jersey Shore fame, has a novel called "Shore Thing" scheduled to come out in January. The publisher said the novel will tell of love on the boardwalk, complete with "big hair, dark tans, and fights galore."
For her part, the young novelist said: "I'm pumped to announce to my fans a project that I've been working on for some time. This book will have you falling in love at the shore. It's 'A Shore Thing!'"
But really, Snooki's literary debut should not come as too much of a shock, as she has apparently spent time around books. "I’ll go to frickin’ Barnes & Nobles, get a coffee and just sit down and read,” she told Us Magazine. “No one would ever think that. We have different sides to us and people don’t see that.”
However, she is not writing the tome alone. Gallery, an imprint of Simon & Schuster, said she has a collaborator, although there's no word on who it is. Let's hope it's Pauly D, who has spent the last two seasons of Jersey Shore honing his craft as a color commentator, and would make an excellent novelist.
