Kindles can hold a lot of eBooks, but you may want to remove some. eBooks are stored in two places; on the eReader itself and your Kindle Library. We will show you how to remove your books.

When you buy an eBook from Amazon, rent one from your local library, or send one to your Kindle, it’s added to your Kindle Library. This is essentially iCloud storage for your eBooks. When you open the book on your Paperwhite, that’s when it downloads the eBook file to the device’s storage.
Remove an E-Book From Kindle
First, we will remove the actual eBook file from your Kindle. Note that this does not remove the book from your Kindle Library. On your Kindle home screen, tap the three-dot menu icon in the top-right corner. Refer to the below image:
Next, select Settings from the menu. See the below image:
Now, go to Device Options. See the following image:
Next, go to Advanced Options. Refer to the below image:
Now, select Storage Management. See the below image:
Next, select Manual Removal. See the following image:
Now, select the Books category. Refer to the below image:
Next, choose the books you do not need anymore and tap Remove. See the below image:
Your books will no longer be taking up storage space on your Kindle Reader. It will still be in your Kindle Library.
Remove a Book From Kindle Library
You can also remove books from the Library, which will disassociate them from your account.
Removing eBooks from your Library can be done from the Kindle app on iPhone, iPad, or Android and the eReader itself. First, open the app or go to the Kindle home screen and select the Library tab. See the following image:
Next, find the book you want to remove and press and hold until a menu appears. Refer to the below image:
Now, select Remove from Download/Library or Permanently Delete from the menu. See the below image:
Next, confirm you want to remove the eBook, and you are done! The eBook will no longer appear in your Kindle Library. If you want the book again, you will need to re-purchase or send it to your Library again. See the following image:
