Just delete them from the Fire, it won't remove them from your K3.

Sounds like you're viewing the 'cloud' tab, and not 'device'. If you look at 'cloud' on the fire you're seeing the same thing as your archive on the K3 - books on your account available for downloading, but not yet physically on that particular device.

It will still show on the cloud portion of your Fire but only for download. The cloud is like the archive list on your K3. The books aren't on the device but you can easily download them if you want.

Your books in the Cloud show a down arrow so you can download them again or on another device.

I suggest you start a new thread as this is in fact a new topic. Also, be more specific about what exactly you want.

Review the new parental controls that came with the latest update.
