Self-prmotion is not allowed on this forum, even for free books. Reported. I would delete this post before Amazon does.

Darcy,

Please remove your post. It is against Amazon guidelines (which you should have read BEFORE posting) to self-promote on these forums. Amazon has provided a forum for such called Meet Our Authors and you can find a link at the bottom of this page for that forum.

It is also extremely impolite, and rude, to insert your promotion in Margaret's thread where she is looking for help. Would you walk up to a bunch of strangers having a conversation and interrupt them to tell them about your book? Why do you think this is any different?

Reported.

Snarky AND unhelpful! Wow! I read the user's manual and couldn't find this simple instruction. Thanks to Peachy Pat for the help.

How do I remove books from cloud from my Kindle Paperwhite?

Lucy, if you want to permanently delete books from your account, you need to use a computer to access the Amazon site.

Is that what you mean?

"Just put fud on ignore. He is the full-time forum troll."

And whatever you do, don't read the manual. When I got my Paperwhite I went through the on-screen tutorial. That taught me how to access the only book on the Kindle at that point. I think it also taught me to delete books but I'm not sure. Then I read the manual and somehow in that three-hour period I learned to delete books.

But, that's irrelevant. Whatever you do, don't read the manual. You can always find suckers who did read the manual who will help the helpless or you can sit passively and wait for a blinding flash of intuition.

But, don't read the manual.

But Pa-a-atri-i-i-i-ick... it's so much e-e-easier to just ask he-e-ere. To find it myse-e-elf is too much wor-r-rk.

I've tried to remove the books that were already on my Kindle paperwhit that were built into this device. I can't seem to remove them using your instructions to tap and hold the title and remove. Is there a way to do this?

D. Phil says:
thank you for your response. I think what I was trying to remove are not actual books but the Kindle singles that are advertised. I can remove the books that I've downloaded. Thanks for your time.
Happy New Year
