As Chris stated back in the late 60's and early 70's more people read than watched TV.
Well, I don't know if that's true. I just said that reading was more common then than it is now, and TV-watching was less ubiquitous then than now. But I think that just means that TV had a smaller lead back then, not that it was behind.

Incidentally, did the books sell well?
Well enough to get 13 volumes done and spawn a line of original Trek novels from Bantam. So it seems they sold decently, at least.
