A Shore Thing by Snooki Gets Live Blogged & Live Tweeted

Reality TV star Nicole Polizzi, aka “Snooki,” published her book today, generating a lively Twitter hashtag “snookibook” and a liveblog over at Smart Bitches, Trashy Books.

So far, responses have ranged from amused laughter to dazed admiration to angry disbelief. The book is called A Shore Thing from Simon and Schuster, and costs $10.99 in the Kindle store. Caution: some readers may find the content of those tweets offensive.

Here’s more about the book, from eBookNewser: “The story takes place at, go figure, the Jersey Shore, where Giovanna “Gia” Spumanti, who sounds a lot like Snooki herself, and her cousin Isabella “Bella” Rizzoli spend their summer looking for parties and boys.”
