The force is with you. And how. Based on George Lucas’ story, Star Wars: Episode II (800,000 copies in print) rockets to No. 1 this week. Another episode 2 that fares well is Robert James Waller’s epilogue to his best-selling weeper The Bridges of Madison County. A Thousand Country Roads debuts at No. 4. In the nonfiction galaxy, eminent historian Robert Caro presents the third episode of Lyndon Johnson’s life; Master of the Senate bangs its gavel at No. 7.
