Am I crazy or when you write a book review say for the hardback version, does it NOT show up if you click "reviews" for the paperback version of the same book?

Guess I have to copy and paste ALL my reviews to ALL versions of the same book (except abridged, I guess).

I think they travel across bindings

When you write a book review, it is for that specific ISBN.  If a book is published with multiple ISBNs (regardless of binding), you have to copy and paste your review to each version where you want it to show up.

I've had to click on the other versions many times when the version I was looking at didn't say anything about the book, neither reviews or descriptions are attached to the title - just the isbn.

I don't know why you'd think the review would be on any book but the one you put it on since nothing in the PBS system crosses over between ISBNs.

The Wishlist knows - it tells you if there are other versions of the same book. It'd be cool if they did post reviews across all versions they know about.

The wishlist knows some connected books, far from all.

The Wishlist knows

The operative word is "knows", the wish list doesn't cross anything over between ISBNs. All the system does is tell you about other ISBNs that are the same book. All information entered for each one is kept completely separate.
