'Jersey Shore's' Snooki is hitting the books

Snooki1 Snookin' for love is no easy task -- and now fans of a certain "Jersey Shore" pint-size "guidette" can read all about it.

As our sister blog Jacket Copy reported, Simon & Schuster’s Gallery Books imprint announced Wednesday that it will publish a novel by Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi, tentatively titled "A Shore Thing."

According to a news release, the book -- slated for a January release (in time to be Oprah's last book club selection?) -- will gyrate around "a girl looking for love on the boardwalk (one full of big hair, dark tans, and fights galore)."  What … no mention of Fossil watches? Guess that’s just an Angelina thing. We at Show Tracker can only hope this modern-day fairytale includes a princely gorilla juicehead.

"I'm pumped to announce to my fans a project that I've been working on for some time," Polizzi said in a statement.  "This book will have you falling in love at the shore." [Updated at 11:05 p.m.: An earlier version of this post misspelled Snooki's last name.]

Earlier this summer, the gal with an affinity for pickles revealed there were plans for a "Snooktionary" to enhance the vocabulary of people everywhere. 

Two books? Quite the achievement for the self-admittedly semi-illiterate woman.

And, hey, we witnessed her speedy typing skills earlier this season when it came time to write the infamous letter to Sammi -- so she's bound to get something together quickly (...sure). Let’s just hope phrases such as "put his head between a cocktail waitresses breasts" aren't part of this tale.

Show Trackers, will you be reading? Or would you have preferred a guide to GTL-ing from the boys?
