The Cloud is great because it is basically a huge bookshelf just for you (but you don’t have to dust it 🙂 ). It grows and grows as you add books.
But at some point, you are going to sort through the Cloud and say “What the heck am I doing with THAT book?” It happens. Especially since Amazon offers so many free books, you might find yourself regretting a grab or two (or in my case, about twenty).
Here is how you permanently delete a Kindle book:
(the important word here is permanently. If you delete books in this manner, you would have to buy them again if you want to read them.)
Access your Amazon account from your computer.
After you sign in, go to “My Account” and slide down to “Manage My Kindle”
After you click on “Manage My Kindle”, you will be shown a list of all the Kindle books that you have ever bought. You can do lots of things from this page, but we are going to concentrate on the permanent delete.
Notice off to the right of each book there is a button labeled “Actions”.
Touch on “Action” next to the book that you would like to permanently delete.
A drop-down menu appears. Note that one of the choices is to “delete from library”.
“Delete from Library” is the magic button that will permanently delete your book.
Select “delete from library”, and you will get this warning message before you actually do the deleting:
I’m so glad they put that extra warning message step in the process, because that way you really know for sure exactly what you are doing.
Give the “yes” a tap and the book will disappear from your Cloud bookshelf … forever.
