Anderson Cooper reads from Snooki’s novel (Video)

Anderson Cooper does not care for “Jersey Shore’s” Snooki. He has showed this time and time again.

But has the CNN host been wrong about the reality star turned novelist? Has he judged her too harshly?

This is the tough question Cooper asked himself on Tuesday’s “AC360,” after he learned that Nicole Polizzi landed a second book deal. Yes, it’s true. Simon & Schuster gave Snooki not one, but two opportunities to write a book, as CNN reported.

So to give the pint-sized writer a fair shake, Cooper did a dramatic reading from her first book, “A Shore Thing.”

After watching Cooper read from Snooki’s deeply moving novel, I think he’s the clear choice to record the book’s audio version.

Now if we could just get Cooper to perform some of the songs released by “Real Housewives” cast members, my life would be complete.
