I've deleted the book and it shows up in archived. I've removed it from my list in "manage my kindle" on amazon, but the book still shows up in my archived books on my IPad. How can I get rid of the book?

I've had that happen a few times as well. I think you may need to deregister the app and then reregister it, and then download all of your current books again.

Did you turn on your whispernet after deleting it from the "manage my kindle" page?

Quiltlvr, this is on an iPad - so long as she has internet connectivity (either wifi or 3G turned on), the app will update itself on startup. There is no separate "Whispernet" setting within the app itself.

But there ARE occasional problems with deleted books getting stuck in the archive; I've got one stuck in mine now that I haven't bothered to clear out by deregistering the app.

Oh, sorry, don't know how I missed that part!

I just tried it and reregistering and reregistering does get rid of "stuck" books and the good news is that you don't need to redownload books on your home screen.

Help!!! I use the Kindle app on my Ipad and have purchased books after reading the sample. I'm unable to delete the samples and want to keep the books I purchased. How can I do this

Linda, on the home screen press and hold on the book cover you want to get rid of and you will see an X in the corner of the cover. Tap the X and the book will be deleted. This works for any books including samples.

Thank you so much !!! That worked like a charm. No more messy screen. I knew it worked on the Kindle but wasn't sure how to delete on the IPad app.

I'm having the same problem. I deregistered the app and reregistered it and the book *still* shows up in the archived titles. Same thing on my Kindle.

What else can I do???

Suddenly unable to delete samples on my Kindle iPad app. This is a recent problem: nothing happens when I hold down the red X.

A hard reset on the iPad didn't help...guess the only thing to do is delete the Kindle app and reinstall. Suggestions?

I have purchased 2 books from amazon, but when I open them on my iPad through kindle, I get an error. It says to delete book and reregister. Amazon says I have already purchased. It has happened with 2 of 3 books I have purchased.

Thanx that was so easy

I was having trouble deleting the samples on mine as well and this post really helped. I pressed and held down on the cover and the option to delete it came right up. Thank you David for your suggestion! =)
