Late, Late at Night Giveaway - Closed

Winner is Steph the Bookworm.  She is being emailed.
 Who is Rick Springfield?
Singer and songwriter.  Grammy award winner for Jessie's Girl. 
An actor.  Heart-throb Dr. Noah Drake on General Hospital

Entertainment Weekly says 
"Rick Springfield has proven himself a man of so many talents... soft-rock hitmaker, swoon-worthy soap star, racy pay cable guest -- is there anything Rick can't do?"

Most important of all, Rick is a person who has the same thing many of us are affected by .... depression.   He's human like the rest of us.   Rick's memoir Late, Late at Night opens with three-minute pop tune he wrote when he turned 50 "My Depression."   In his self-deprecatory way, he suggests that's enough for those with a short attention span.  The rest of the book is a wonderful memoir, a reflection of his life.  He made me smile, laugh, and even wipe away some tears.   

Touchstone, Simon and Schuster has given me this book to Giveaway, so that one of you can also enjoy reading about Rick late, late at night.   
In order to win, leave a comment and include your email address if it isn't in your profile.  One entry per person.  The winner will be drawn by random.com on November 11th.  The winner will be emailed and given 48 hours to reply.    In the meantime, meet Rick here, and pick up a copy at your favorite bookstore.

I have loved Rick Springfield since Jessie's Girl. He was the first act I saw live. I loved him in Californication, too!

I'm not big on memoirs; so this is not an entry ... BUT, for all the people who are, I've seen great reviews on this one, so if you're a Springfield fan or like memoirs in general, this one seems like a good pick!

I'm a fan of well done biographies and memoirs, and I understand Rick is forthcoming about his extramarital affairs and other problems.
I would like to read this. (Win this?)
