Is it possible to totally get rid of books by completely removing them from Cloud as well as your Kindle device?

Yes, but then you'll have to buy them if you ever want them back again.

Go to the Manage Your Kindle page on the website and delete the books. Then sync the Kindle to the account with the wireless on and connected.

yes there is, but it involves removing them permanently from your account using your Manage Your Kindle page (available under the Your Account menu)

then turn on the wireless on your kindle and sync

and be careful doing that as it's very, very easy due to the last minute page jump to delete a book you wanted to keep

I am starting to think that the Amazon cloud will not let you delete anything from it. The books are easily deleted from the kindle. But their little covers remain so you can re-download them when you shift from device view to cloud view. I want them to disappear. How do you do that? Do we even have the right to ask Amazon to alter its cloud content?

Kym: When you delete the book from the Ki9ndle, that does not alter the content of the cloud/archive. You can delete the book from the cloud/archive on the Manage Your Kindle page on the website. That removes the book permanently from your account.

The you can sync the Kindle to the account with the wireless on and then the book title will disappear from the cloud/archive list on the Kindle. You might also have to remove it from the carousel if you have a Fire.

Don't be silly, Kym. The post above yours tells you how to delete them. And, it's *not* Amazon's cloud content: it's *your* content in your cloud.

If you could bulk delete from the cloud there would be so many phone calls from people upset because they deleted books they didn't mean to delete.

They made it difficult on purpose, with good reason. Spend a little time on the Kindle Help forum and you'll realize how clueless the average buyer is.

What I have my own cloud, no wonder it always rains on my parade. LMAO. Say my friend, there is reason some in the forum have the sub title "kindle forum pro".

Play through.

A complaint for 3 years by .002% of their customer base. Just because a complaint is posted on these forums, even if you perceive it to be widespread, doesn't mean it's that prevalent. You see, the secret of these boards, as with all customer boards, the *vast* majority of the base is happy, and thus not posting. If 10% of the posts here are complaints, I can promise you that doesn't translate to 10% of the entire base being unhappy, because 99.9% of that base doesn't even know these boards exist to begin with. Because they are pretty much happy with the way the Kindle system works.

Good point Grimm, after I bought a Nissan Titan in 2009, I found a titan forum, crap I thought I bought a piece of junk from the posts. END result great truck, 116,000 miles and going strong. I visit forums to pick up neat ideas, and to become better informed.
