Does anyone know how to delete a book permanently from the Kindle app? Even after I've deleted books from my kindle library, both loans from my public library and books from Amazon, they're still listed on the app on my iPhone. I can't access them, of course, but I also can't figure out how to get them off the list.

if you swipe the title - do you get the option to delete?

If you want to delete a book from your Archives, you have to use your Manage Your Kindle page, and then you would have to repurchase the book to read it again.

Delete from the app, delete from the Archives, then sync the app to Amazon, so that it can update your Archives.

I just do a long hold on the book, and select "remove from device." The book is gone from my iPhone app then. Are you making sure you looking at the "device" and not the "cloud" when you delete them?

Deleting it from the library before archiving it on the phone seems to work best, for me anyway. Nothing happens when I do a long hold.

Thanks, everyone, for your advice.
