Welcome and thanks for your question.I'm Todd and I will be the expert working with you today to help resolve your problem.


To permanently delete book please follow the steps below:

1. Go to the link below (use your Amazon username and password ***** log in) - click here
After log in you will be prompted with the "Manage Your Content & Devices" page (check the picture below)

2. Find the book you want to delete and select it.

3. On the left side, click on "Actions" and select "Delete".
4. You will be asked for a confirmation, since this action is non-revocable, the book would be completely gone and you will need to buy it again to read it. You will not be refunded the original purchase cost. Confirm with "Yes, Delete".
5. When done, turn off your Kindle, wait 2 minutes and turn it on. Go to Menu, and select Sync.

Please don't hesitate to ask if you have any difficulties. I will be happy to help with any follow up questions.

Kind Regards,
