They're free, and yes, others have received them also.

You don't need to use them, though I think it's kind of nice they're available if/when needed.

I agree with TBell. If you'd been charges PS you'd have received and email stating such...fairly obvious...

Since when does Amazon charge you for stuff you didn't choose to buy? (JSMH)

they're part of the latest updates and amazon considers them essential, so if you delete them from your account, they'll just come back for the next update (btw, at least one of those dictionaries costs over 40 USD to purchase, so you're getting a lot of expensive books for nothing)

For me they just make it longer to scroll through my books. I have had a Kindle since the first generation and since I will never need to use a Chinese, Japanese, etc dictionary, I have just deleted them. I do think it is wonderful they are provided free to those who need them. In addition to the dictionaries, if you have noticed, they also have the users guides in these same languages, and I have deleted those as well because they are not useful to me.

Note that they will come back with the next update, so you'll need to delete them all again. It's easier just to ignore them IMO.

I'm not getting these dictionaries. I have a kindle 2 US - are they only coming out for newer kindles? I also have several kindle apps, on IPod Touch, IPad mini, and MacBook Air that haven't gotten dictionaries.

You'll only get dictionaries and user's guides in multiple languages if you have a Kindle or Kindle app that supports multiple languages. The K2US does not. I'm not sure about the apps for Apple devices.
