Well, in 2005 I wrote,
"For a variety of reasons, I had never read Heinlein.
(I mostly read non-fiction, and rarely read Sci-Fi).
On a recent vacation I read Heinlein's "Starship Troopers".
I liked it very much, and then found a used copy
of "Double Star" in a Latin American store and read it."
It is possible, that that is true.
Or I may have forgotten a lot.
