When you publish a paper edition and an e-book, and link them with the ISBN of the paper edition, then the Reader Reviews from the paper edition will eventually gravitate over to the Kindle version.

Does it also work the other way? Does a Reader Review of the Kindle edition automatically appear on the Amazon page for the paper version?

Bingo! Yes, it works both ways.

I put a (useful) reader comment on the Kindle edition of my book yesterday. Today that comment showed up on the paperback edition.

Even better, another Reader Review, posted to the paperback page, has appeared on the Kindle edition. So it works in both directions, and the lapse is about 24 hours, at least on a weekday. (I've noticed that things seem to go more slowly on weekends.)

Can you elaborate on how you linked the ISBN numbers? Is there a place in the "edit book" area to do this? I understand the idea, but not where you do that?

Actually, DTP Guy now tells us the ISBN has nothing to do with it, and that indeed we shouldn't put the print ISBN on the product information for the Kindle edition.

Evidently they link up by title and author, so it's fairly important to keep these the same.

If you believe in Christ then all information suggests Christ did not practice Christianity. He was Jewish. Christianity did not exist until after his passing and resurrection at which time his followers created the religion in his honor.

The reason I bring this up is not to be critical but rather that it points to an issue with your marketing. The statement itself will turn religious scholars away from the book as it will bring into question the authors credibility.

I learned to cook the perfect hard boiled egg. Now my challenge is learning how to peel it.
