The Cloud is just a list of all of your content in your account. When you delete something from your device it's still in the Cloud so you can download it later if you want to.

It depends on which Kindle or Kindle app you are using. Some models list all of your books on the Cloud tab, while others only list the books that are not currently downloaded to the device.

What do you mean you're unable to delete books? Are you trying to remove them from your device, or permanently delete them from your account?

The cloud is a list of all the books you own that are stored at Amazon - it will always be in the cloud unless you delete it permanently from the MYCD page

If you delete them off the MYCD page you will have to repurchase it if you want to reread it later on.

Marilyn..... when purchase a new ebook the book is sent to the device and the cloud automatically. Think of the cloud as an invisible copy of your book. It holds it there for safekeeping just in case your kindle breaks or you wish to send to a new device. You aren't paying for two copies nor paying for storage in the cloud.

If you delete a book from the cloud (using your PC/laptop) you have to confirm that you know that if you wish to read the book again you will have to repurchase it.

There is no need to delete from the cloud, I have only deleted some free books that were terrible and weren't even worth a first time reading!
