Reason for stopping: End of scene. Can't start next one because it's very long and involved and requires three new characters who don't have personalities yet, and we're going to see Pirates of the Carribean tonight, so if I want to get any reading done at all before I cook dinner, I have to do it now.
The rest of my Amazon order came today, so I now have four more books sitting in my to-research pile for Stratford Man, for a total of six. Two more and a DVD set to follow, and then I think if I don't know it and can't figure it out through google, I'll bloody well make it the hell up.
There are limits.
