It looks like Library of America, the venerable publisher of classic American literature, will give in and start publishing books of greater interest to the general public. LOA announced today that it would publish volumes of Paris Hilton’s and William Shatner’s memoirs, and possibly those of Jersey Shore’s Snooki (Nicole Polizzi). If the plan proves fruitful for the publisher, there’s no telling who might come next. Charlie Sheen? Britney Spears? Chris Brown? Lindsay Lohan? The possibilities are endless. Stay tuned.
