Kate Middleton can add Mr. Men children’s books to list of items immortalizing her fancy nuptials. Little Miss Princess meets and falls in love with a prince, Mr. Bump, and soon she’s living a castle with a butler who puts toothpaste on her toothbrush for her. Little Miss Princess, which goes on sale in the UK on Monday, will be the first Mr. Men book to be published since 2004; an accompanying sticker and coloring book, Little Miss Princess and the Very Special Wedding, will be for sale in April. I’m not sad, though. Mr. Men wrote a book about me, too! It was called Little Miss Trouble. [Daily Mail UK] Keep reading »
Bristol Palin‘s memoir is coming out this summer and it will be called Not Afraid Of Life. Kudos to you for making reference to anti-abortion propaganda, Bristol! Not Afraid Of Life, which is being published by William Morrow, will cover her 20 years on Earth, including her appearance on “Dancing With the Stars,” her religious faith, and presumably her mother’s run as the Republican nominee for vice president of the United Stated. I, for one, am praying Bristol will dish some dirt on her baby daddy ex, Levi Johnston, but unfortunately the Palins seem to be too classy for that. More realistically, she’ll just tell us alllll about how every pregnant teen girl should totally have a baby because it’s so easy to get nationally televised TV gigs and book deals. Gooooooo abstinence?! [NY Times] Keep reading »

Earlier this month, Jenni “JWoww” Farley became the third “Jersey Shore” cast member to pen a book, releasing The Rules According to JWoww: Shore Tested Secrets on Landing a Mint Guy, Staying Fresh to Death, and Kicking the Competition. (The Situation and Snooki beat her to the bookshelves.) “Women need dating rules like they need bras,” she writes in the intro. “Sure, you can go without them, but if you do—and you’re sporting a nice boob job like I am—you are gonna be flopping out there in the wind. You need the right support.” Nice analogy? [MSNBC]
JWoww has been on the road, hardcore promoting her 214 page book. On Wednesday night, she talked to Leno about it, giving him a few examples of her 60 rules. First, she explained, do not drink on a first date. “Don’t end up like we are on the show. Avoid that,” Jenni said. Yep, I’ll cosign on that.
After the jump, we’ve collected some of the rules from Jenni’s book that she’s discussed so far and rate how sound we think her advice is. Keep reading »

This is the book idea that got away. I am such a pro at doing nothing with nobody all alone by myself, however it often results in me having conversations with plants. I bet there’s a chapter about that in the book. [Reddit] Keep reading »

A new book, Kisstory: A Sweet And Sexy Look At The History Of Kissing by Joanne Wannan, explores the history of our favorite amorous pastime. After the jump, ten facts you probably didn’t know about the kiss. [The Daily Mail] Keep reading »
