I want a book deleted completely from my Kindle. Every time I try to delete it, it still shows up. I can't redownload, and I can't delete. When I try to sync my Kindle, that doesn't work either. What should I do?

How do I delete a book from my Kindle? I've tried, and it still shows up. I've also tried syncing, and that doesn't work either.

What model of Kindle do you have? Are you seeing the book in your cloud/archive on your Kindle? Have you deleted the book from the Manage Your Content and Devices page on (Deleting it here permanently removes it from your account.) If you don't delete it from the Manage Your Content and Devices page, it's going to continue to show up on your Kindle listed in the cloud/archive even if it isn't actually on your device.

1. press on title until a menu shows up and if the option shows up to remove from Kindle do so (if you have a Kindle with buttons, you will toggle to the title and right click)

2. go to your Manage Your Content and Devices page (link under the Your Account menu at the upper right of this webpage), find the book and click on the little box in front of the title and then press the delete button

3. turn wireless on on your Kindle and sync (this is either a menu option on your home page menu or an icon)

I have a kindle for pc or for windows 8. I deleted it from there to begin with. It's still showing up, but thank you for sharing what you know. I welcome anymore input!

so where is it still showing up?
if you only deleted it from your device tab in the kindle app, it will still show up in the cloud tab.
if you want it permanently gone from your account you have to do it from Manage Your Content and Devices, then sync the app (you may have to do it a few times before the cloud list in the app matches your account.
