some people just shouldn't write books.

You've probably heard of the reality TV show Jersey Shore.  If you haven't, it's 45 minutes of watching spray-tanned teenagers yelling, hooking up, going to the gym, and partying.

And now a star member of this show has written a book.
Snooki's book "A Shore Thing" was released on Jan. 4, 2011.
That's ridiculous.

From what I read on Amazon, it's about this girl and her cousin, who go to Jersey Shore for the summer. They both meet boys and have drama and then everything works out. The end.

It's hard to make your writing reality.
JK Rowling wrote the first words of Harry Potter on a dinner napkin.
Stephen King had to use multiple pen names to get his books published. 

I think that books should be meaningful.
They should have depth and at least have a message in it.
But then Snooki rolls on in, and produces a shiny book with her face on the cover.

That's just...
I can't even put the proper words to describe what I'm feeling right now.
Stop Snooki.
Just stop.

Eeeeewwwwww!! A book by Snooki?! ROFL. That's really lame. I would definitely not read it. I love books that can make me laugh and cry. Not books that will have me staring at the page saying, "WTF IS THIS?!"

Ah, true true true.
I cry easily when I'm reading. x]

I couldn't agree with you more :)
My first book started out on the back of an old grocery receipt LOL

Amen to that. I like books that are realistic and make me laugh out loud. Even if people stare in class wondering what's wrong with me ;)
