Snooki - A Shore Thing - Excerpts

Excerpts from A Shore Thing
by Snooki

"He had an okay body. Not fat at all. And naturally toned abs. She could pour a shot of tequila down his body and slurp it out of his navel without getting splashed in the face."

"Yum. Johnny Hulk tasted like fresh gorilla."

"Any juicehead will get some nut shrinkage. And bacne."

"I love my family, my friends, my job, my boss. And I love my body, especially the badonk."

Nut shrinkage? Fresh gorilla? Bacne? Don't know about you, but I'll be in the line at Borders when this eloquently-written gem drops.
