Sadly, it was bound to happen. Nicole Polizzi aka “Snooki” from the MTV reality show, Jersey Shore is now a published author. Her book, “A Shore Thing,” hit store shelves today. Hey, if Snooki can get a book publish maybe there is hope for all those legitimate, talented writers.

Her debut novel, "A Shore Thing" (Gallery Books, $24) was released Tuesday and it's a safe bet to say that the antics in her tome don't stretch too far from what we see each week.

Check some excerpts from the book and what Snooki’s New Year’s Resolution is.
