Yes. And that pans out. These are book sales since DUD first came out. ALL of these people who bought the books are not watching the show. In fact, most of them aren't. The book readers make up a very very small percentage of people watching the show.

In SM's quote btw, HE was quoting the bigwigs at HBO, it wasn't his own assumption.
