If you shop at Amazon.co.uk, you’re often out of luck when it comes to reader comments. So I often find myself editing the URL, switching back and forth between .co.uk and .com. Luckily, this transatlantic adventure usually works out, as the crazy Amazon IDs match.

Still, I can’t help thinking Amazon ought to drop in comments from the various Amazons, or at least from those that speak the same language. It’s a lot of extra data for free. And they could happily point out the edition it came from, just like their “this refers to the hardcover edition” disclaimers.
