I have had my kindle fire (2nd gen but not HD) for almost a full year. I have almost 2,000 books on it and recently went through the process of deleting alot of them not only on the kindle but in the manage your kindle section of amazon. That was a week ago. My kindle has synced many times since then plus been fully turned off a few times, but i still notice that the books i "thought" i deleted are still sitting on my kindle with the little arrow in the bottom right corner wanting me to download them again.
i would like to understand WHY these books have not disappeared from my kindle. Again, they only show up under the cloud tab on my fire - not on the device tab.
Anyone who can help me not only understand but also figure out how to permanently remove these would be doing me an amazing favor. thank you!!

Do they show up on your ?

You have the original Fire as the 2nd gen did not come out until 9/12.

Try a hard reset by holding the power button in for 30 seconds.

Thank you Nospin for the info about having the original and 2nd gen fire. I was unaware of that and sincerely thought i had a 2nd gen. That info will help me in the future. I did the hard reset and did not see the previously deleted books in the cloud anymore and when i checked the manage your kindle section all traces of the books were gone. So thank you VERY MUCH for your help and information. That was driving me crazy!

I am having the same problem only mine in on my ipad with the kindle app. I've deleted the books through amazon on my computer and deleted from the device, but they still show up in cloud on my ipad. Anyone know an answer to this?
