Is there a way to find out how many copies of an eBook have been sold? I notice on Kindle that they tell you the number of reviews an eBook has gotten but not the number of eBooks.

You can find out how many copies of your own books have been sold, it will show up on your account. For anyone else, you're pretty much limited (where Amazon is concerned) to seeing where the work in question is ranked. To see a given book's ranking, scroll down to Product Details.

For example, my cousin Jennifer, her husband's brother, Terry Mancour, has a novel out called Spellmonger. In the Kindle store, it's currently listed at #1602 (#1 would be the best selling Kindle ebook). Amazon also lists by genre, where Spellmonger is listed as #41 in Action and Adventure, and #89 in Fantasy.

It's hard to give those numbers context, but I do recall seeing him post on Facebook that he's sold maybe around 7000 copies, or thereabouts. Do not recall for certain if that was just for Spellmonger, or all the books he's done in that particular series.
