Today's numbers. Here is the WPLC Digital Library site should anyone wish to browse or check my data (though -- who's anal enough to care but me?)

There are a total of 785 Science Fiction titles. 149 (19%) of them have the Star Wars logo on the cover.

There are 457 titles currently available, 97 (21%) with the Star Wars logo.

There are 328 titles checked out, meaning 152 (15%) of them are Star Wars books.

Perhaps these numbers are too small to be statistically very meaningful, but it certainly doesn't support that the readership "overwhelmingly" support it. If anything, by a small margin, they underwhelmingly support it, as they are left on the shelf disproportionally more than the rest of the collection.
