Are there differences in e-book consumption by state?

Where are the most voracious e-book readers?

Mark Coker, founder of Smashwords, has provided some interesting data in a posting on TeleRead.

I was surprised at the differences in e-book consumption by state. The range is huge. This is just for Smashwords e-books and doesn’t take into account other providers or library usage, but it’s interesting nonetheless.

I suppose there is similar data somewhere on which states have the most voracious book borrowers. Anyone can point me to it?
