Hi all, please can I ask a question about kindle,  had mine about a year, I love my kindle to bits, bought loads of great books, my problem if it exists? I downloaded 3-4 free books that I could not get into, my question is, is thier no way yet on kindle to delete these books, all other kindle books I bought I can go back to time and time again.
Thanks.

Hi Derek,

What type of Kindle do you have, as there are different types.  On mine, which is a Paperwhite, I just hold my finger on the title of the book, options come up and I just delete the book.   RCer's on here have kindles, and hopefully they will have one that you have.

You should be able to do a search on the web for your kindle manual.

Cheers
KHP

I have a Kindle Fire and have been having trouble for weeks where books are not successfully downloading even though the front cover is shown.   

What I've found is that if you go to Books, Library then press and hold the title, you can select the download arrow from the top bar (from memory a little arrow symbol with a line).   Some books take two, three or four attempts.

You could go into your Amazon account online, select Manage Content and Devices, then select the books you want rid of, and delete them.

Bear in mind though, that if you actually delete them rather than just Remove from Device, you will no longer get a reminder from Amazon that you have previously purchased a book, and if you are at all forgetful you might end up buying the same one again.
