Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi may be a bestselling author (yep), but it looks like she still needs to brush up on her reading.

The pint-sized Jersey Shore castmember stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live Tuesday night to promote her new book, Gorilla Beach, during which she confessed to not knowing a number of high-profile authors. Among her targets: Harry Potter scribe J.K. Rowling.

"[I] don't know who that is, but I'm here," Snooki said, when Kimmel compared the speed at which Snooki writes books to Rowling's.

Later in the interview, Kimmel quipped that Snooki had used the word "friggin'" in her book 74 times, breaking a record previously set by Dr. Maya Angelou.

"I don't know who that is ... I don't know who anybody is!" she said.

We believe you.

    Wow. How dumb can one person be? If Jimmys joke was that Snooki writes books fast then it was a bad one. It takes JK Rowling 3 years to write one book.

    When Snooki goes on these shows she gives "Snooki". She does the fun,bippity-boppity, party-girl "Snooki" that we see on Jersey Shore . In her normal everyday life when the cameras aren't around she's not a stupid girl.
