Gym, Tan... Literature! 'Jersey Shore's' Snooki Penning A Novel

“Jersey Shore” star Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi has reportedly only ever read two books (one about vampires and one that was made into a Channing Tatum movie) – but that’s not stopping the tanned reality star from writing a novel of her own!

Simon & Schuster’s Gallery Books announced today that the pint-sized glowing reality star is writing her first novel, “A Shore Thing,” slated to hit the shelves in January.

According to the publisher, Snooki’s first foyer into the literary world “will revolve around a girl looking for love on the boardwalk (one full of big hair, dark tans, and fights galore).”

“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!’” Snooki said in a statement released to Access Hollywood.

No word how much progress Snooki (or her ghostwriter) has made on her virgin tome, but on Wednesday, she wasn’t pounding away at the keyboard.

“Doing a little shopping today… Tryna do something romantic for the boy :) Awwwww,” Snooki Tweeted.

According to a July interview, Snooki told the New York Times’ Cathy Horyn that the two books she’s only read are Stephenie Meyer’s “Twilight” and Nicholas Sparks’ “Dear John,” both of which were made into feature films.
