May the Fourth be with you. Sandwiched between the protests of May Day and the margaritas of Cinco de Mayo, today we celebrate everything Star Wars.

And Amazon’s Star Wars shop wants you to seriously get your Force on today. They’re offering about 40 to 50 percent off practically everything Star Wars as the Deal of the Day, like clothes, action figures, jewelry and more.

Also, you can get up to 80 percent off Star Wars books on Kindle.

Amazon reports that this is indeed the year of Star Wars, or at least the unloading a lot of Star Wars gear. They report that “sales of Star Wars toys and games by Amazon have more than doubled year-over-year.” It’s a trend that’s unlikely to go away anytime soon, since we still have more than half a year until The Force Awakens comes out.

Also fascinating: Watching the “Movers & Shakers” list, which shows the biggest gainers in the last 24 hours. How that Jabba figure made it to No. 2 (as of this writing) is beyond us. Human behavior on the Internets never ceases to amaze.
