Remove a book from your Kindle:
It's all in your 5-way toggle switch. Use it to move around your Home screen ... up or down.
When what you want to deal with is underlined (selected), use the toggle switch again to see what kind of choices you have. Toggle to the right to see choices. There will be different choices depending on what you have selected. Toggle to the left to delete (or remove from collection if you have a book within a collection selected).
If you want to remove a book from your Kindle and it is in a collection, remove it from the collection first. Then press the Home button on your Kindle and reselect the book. Once the book is selected again, toggle the switch to the left and choose remove from device if it is a book purchased from Amazon. If it is a book you downloaded from somewhere other than Amazon, the option will be to delete the book.
Books purchased from Amazon and removed from your Kindle will continue to be available in your Archives, stored on the Amazon servers until you want them again. Consider it your personal library of books you purchased from Amazon.
