Is this what will save the book industry? Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi has just snagged a book deal with Simon and Schuster to write a novel based on her experiences of the Jersey Shore. The book is not an autobiography, but a fictional account of shenanigans down at the beach.

The book, called for the moment A Shore Thing, will tell the tale of a "girl looking for love on the boardwalk (one full of big hair, dark tans, and fights galore)," according to the announcement. Snooki, 22, was excited to spread the news. "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," she said.
