What Kindle do you have? Or Kindle app? It depends.

If a Kindle Touch, tap and hold on the title of the book you want to delete and choose "Remove from Device" on the pop up menu.
If a Kindle with buttons, move the cursor to the book and click right on the 5 way controller. Choose "Remove from Device".
If a Kindle app on an Apple device (iPhone, iPad, etc.) swipe across the title (I think left to right, I can't remember for sure) and hit the red Archive button that appears.
If a Kindle Fire or Android app, I'm not sure.

ETA: If you want to completely remove the book from your account, go to the top of this page where it says "Your Account" and go to "Manage Your Kindle". Delete the book from you library there.
