Robert Heinlein

One of the first authors that I remember reading was Robert Heinlein. Back in those days, all books were physical, and for young kids in school, the library was my haven. So I read Robert Heinlein and anything else I could find. But I loved Heinlein. There are so many books, and I will begin listing them here. Even though I have read many of these books, I will be working on re-reading them as I can.
