When I looked up my Kindle Library at Amazon I see that the titles have been changed to Chinese and some other language that may be Italian or Spanish. I speak and read American English. How do I fix the list. I'm afraid to download anything new.

Are you seeing some books on Manage Your Kindle that are in foreign languages? Those are dictionaries and user guides.

Or do you mean that all of your books are showing up in other languages?

you should have anywhere from 10-16 different user guides and dictionaries in your Manage Your Kindle page (number depends on which kindle(s) you have) is you have a kindle that supports multiple languages

I had this happen about a week or so ago. When I went to to put some ratings in my book list there were suddenly several books at the top of the list in Chinese, and as I looked through the list I found a bunch more, mostly in German. It also showed about 60 more total books than I remembered MYK saying I have. So I checked MYK and sure enough, the MYK number matched what my Touch says I have in my cloud. So then I typed in some of the titles in MYK that had suddenly appeared on the other location, and they don't appear on MYK. I went back to and clicked a couple of links directly to the page on Amazon, and it gets really weird...the links go to pages totally in German, and several said that book currently isn't available for Kindle. Others had a price listed, but did not show the banner saying I had purchased it.

I've seen a couple of other posts talking about weird foreign languages suddenly showing up, and I think it's the same thing. Weird.

nope it's normal - most of those dictionaries and user guides are not available for sale and everyone with a Kindle that supports multiple languages gets them
