Anderson Cooper delivers a dramatic reading of Snooki's novel

July 13, 2011 at 11:42 AM ET

For those who haven’t already experienced Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi’s guido-and-tequila-filled literary effort, “A Shore Thing,” here’s an oh-so-serious excerpt read by Anderson Cooper.

“See, Snooki’s not some poor man’s Jackie Collins,” the “AC360” host deadpanned after reading just a short sample. “She toils at her craft.”

Snooki, and presumably her ghostwriter, will be toiling away again soon. Her second novel, “Gorilla Beach” is expected to be released just in time for the summer of 2012.

Do you plan to read either of Snooki’s Seaside Heights tomes? Share your thoughts on our Facebook page!
