Sales for A Shore Thing by Snooki seem to have been low, as the book has sold about 4,000 copies according to this Daily Finance article. I am torn as to whether to make a joke about how fans of the show have a low literacy rate or to praise our nations retention of bullshit. I wonder how many of our nations libraries wasted the $15 or so dollars this waste-of-a-tree cost.
With books like Here's the Situation: A Guide to Creeping on Chicks, Avoiding Grenades, and Getting in Your GTL on the Jersey Shore and Gym, Tanning, Laundry: The Official Jersey Shore Quote Book already out there and the soon to be released The Rules According to JWOWW: Shore-Tested Secrets on Landing a Mint Guy, Staying Fresh to Death, and Kicking the Competition to the Curb, this writer hopes upon hope that this abortion of the English language can prevail and people who still like a good read will continue to buy quality books that deserve the paper they are printed on. If these books begin to sell well, I can only hope to find my way to a local liquor store and begin a slow decline of vile depravity that our nation seems to be embracing. Hell, I might even start reading and watching The Twilight Saga un-ironically. (Seriously, those first two movies are the best comedies to come out in ages.)
I will tell you now, I used to be for the "as long as the kid is reading" line of thinking. However, if you see anyone reading these books, slap them down with fiery vengeance and explain to them the coming 2012 apocalypse. It is upon us and its herald is "Snooki."
