Stuff White People Like: Blog to Book for $350,000

The Canadian behind the humor blog Stuff While People Like has reportedly signed a book contract with Random House for a staggering $350,000 advance.

The blog has only been around since January of this year, but it's already gotten more than 16 million hits. Top posts on the blog cover topics that "white people" supposedly like including Asian Girls, Coffee, Having Gay Friends, and Dinner Parties. The book will be two-thirds new material mixed in with one-third blog posts.

How the blogger, "clander", describes Stuff White People Like: "This is a scientific approach to highlight and explain stuff white people like. They are pretty predictable."

This isn't the first time a massively popular blog has gotten a book deal. I Can Haz Cheeseburger and Barack Obama is Your New Bicycle both have books in production.
