E-publishing Statistics?

Does anyone know if there are any sort of statistics or a report that says what is selling best at e-publishers? I know they often say "we're looking for" or "hot right now is" but I'd like some statistics to quote.

A couple of years ago I had a chance to ask a question of a panel of senior editors and agents about e-publishing and they hadn't a clue. Maybe if someone had the numbers to say 'Look. Gay/lesbian romance is really selling. There's money to be made" it might spark their interest.
