Yesterday my kindle free order books appeared in a foreign language. Is anyone else having problems witht his? ALso today anytime I touch the screen the keyboard appears and I don't want it to. Help?

If a book appears in a foreign language, then the book is in that language. There is no way for the Kindle itself to translate a whole book.

I guess I received some dictionaries in a foreign language. I deleted them as I saw no need for them. Strange how they appeared. Thanks!

I have several titles of books (I guess they're books) listed in my Kindle Library. I have to delete each one separately. Don't know where they come from. Let me know if you find a solution.

Probably foreign language dictionaries and users guides.

Don't delete them. They'll just keep coming back because they're part of the Kindle package now. Just ignore them and they'll fall to the back of your list eventually.

Too late. I deleted them again. I'll leave them the next time they appear. Thanks for the info. Seems like they should be able to fix this.

There's nothing to fix. The books are part of the system and are meant to be there.

Jean - There's nothing to "fix". They support the multi-language features on your Kindle provided free of charge by Amazon. They aren't downloaded onto your Kindle and are taking up no space. If you aren't going to use them, just ignore them. You can't delete them as they will just come back. They are almost a part of the operating system.

Amazon considers it awesomeness.

Of course it does.

It sounds awesome. I'm a lowly Kindle Keyboard owner and I didn't get them.

I do admit to being a wee bit jealous. ;)
