Jennifer Goebel has always wished that “reader of books” was a paid profession. Born in the Philippines, she moved around a lot as a child and books were her constant companions. This near-pathological love for being immersed in an imaginary world has continued into adulthood, as the two-foot high stacks of books on her bedside table and her husband Jamie will attest. As a parent, she has tried to instill a love of reading into her two boys, Ben and Matthew, with some success. In return, both boys have led her into the unfamiliar world of sports. After many years of watching the boys battle it out on the field, she has actually started enjoying Premier League soccer.
