A Kobo study, reported in the Guardian, claims that the biggest consumers of ebooks are women over 45, with women between 55-65 years of age accounting for 30% of all Kobo readers:
Digital reading driven by older women, study claims

A reflection only on Kobo users, or the wider reading public? Either way, romance and then thrillers are the most-read genre categories.
