Bristol Palin gets a Book Deal and I Die a Little on the Inside

Yes.  It’s true.

You know what really gets me here?  It’s not that she’s the insignificant daughter of an over hyped former vice-presidential candidate and failed Alaskan governor, or that she’s only 20 years old (actually, both of those things get me too) it’s the target audience.  Who is the target audience for this book!?!?!?!?!

Seriously, I want to know.  If it’s you reading this, let me know why in the comments because I don’t understand who could possibly want to spend money on and read this.  What has she done?  Is her time on Dancing with the Stars really that interesting?

Bristol Palin, seen in California in February, will release her memoir Not Afraid of Life in summer 2011.

Bristol Palin balks at the prospect of having to write anything longer than 140 characters...

There’s also the whole “she just signed the deal and the book comes out this summer” thing.  Don’t think for a second that she’s started it, she’s just going to write it in 3 months.

NOTE:  If you can write your life’s story in 3 months, you’re (a) exceptionally dull, (b) extremely forgetful, (c) lying, (d) in no position to be writing your memoirs.

    Ah don’t worry, it will sell to people with a similar mindest to the author. Like all the Katie Price biographies. It won’t have a shelf life of much more than six months, and I predict that from it’s release it will be sold at a discount in bargain book outlets. That’s not just me being bitchy, but that’s just how it goes with these rushed-in-speculation-of profit z-list celebrity biographies.

      But just think, there’s a chance that a child or young teen will come across that book in the bargin bin by mistake, leaf through the pages and then be turned off from reading forever! Or worse – it could end up in a library among real books…
