The Situation to write a book: Somebody prep the Pulitzer!

The New York Post reports that the abs-olutely abs-urd star of MTV’s STD-turned-television series Jersey Shore has secured a deal with Gotham Books to write Here’s the Situation, a work of nonfiction set to come out this November. The Sitch told EW’s Tim Stack that it will be “a tell-all book. Sorta like how I came about and everything like that.” The reality figure also mentioned that someone is helping him with the writing, which I’m guessing will help make the text at least somewhat comprehensible. That is, as long as the ghostwriter isn’t Pauly D.

What do you think, Shelf-Lifers? Would you be willing to pay money for a book by The Situation? More importantly, would you be willing to be seen paying money for it?
