How do I delete a book after I have finished reading it and

Customer Question

Hello, how do I delete a book after I have finished reading it and know that it is not one I will want to read again?
JA: What's the make/model of your device? How old is it?
Customer: It is a Kindle Paperwhite and it is about a month old.
JA: How long has this been going on? What troubleshooting have you tried?
Customer: There is not a problem. I just would like to know how to delete books that I have already read and do not wish to keep or read again.
JA: Anything else you want the eReader expert to know before I connect you?
Customer: Yes, when I enabled parental controls on my daughter Amy's new Kindle Paperwhite yesterday, all of the downloaded books were suddenly no longer in her library until I took off the parental controls. I would like to know what to do to prevent her accessing the internet but I want her library to stay intact. How do I do that?
