    As of July 2009, worldwide sales of A Woman A Man Walked By were at an estimated 110,000.

    As of April 2009, Dance Hall at Louse Point had sold 19,919 copies in the UK.
    A Woman A Man Walked By entered at UK #25 on sales of 8,157.

    First-week US sales of White Chalk were around 13,300.

    It's funny how Stories is considered her most commercial album yet it's her second lowest charting album in the UK. The singles didn't make top40 either. Yet, Rid Of Me, Uh Huh Her, White Chalk and LES all made the top10/top20.

    22,468 is really good - over 8,000 more than White Chalk's first-week sales.

    On the Hits Daily Double site that tracks building US album sales, Let England Shake is at #43 with 14,193 sales; the final Billboard chart usually adds some sales and the position may change but it's a good guideline.

    According to United World Chart, Let England Shake sold around 70,000 copies worldwide in its first week to debut at No.13 on that chart.

    Down to UK #22 in week two with sales in the 6-7,000 region to take total UK sales so far to just less than 30,000.

    It entered the Dutch album charts last week on #17 (made it the highest new entry I believe) and it's now up to #14.

    EDIT: Which makes it the highest charting album over here!!! Uh huh her, second highest, only got to #23.

    EDIT2: Wow and it's up to #4 in Flanders (Belgium) in it's second week, which beats To Bring You My Love (#5) and Is this Desire? (#8).
