To delete web pages on the carousel, go to web-settings-clear history and clear cachet. To delete a video from the carousel, go to settings- more-applications-Amazon video-clear data. To clear apps from the carousel, go to settings- more- applications- filter by all apps-app manager-clear data.

how do I delete BOOKS from the carousel, I deleted them from my library but they still show up in the carousel. They are definately NOT books I want to have to be reminded that I purchased everytime I turn on my kindle and scroll through the home screen.

If you deleted them at https://amazon.com/myk, then.if you sync, they should go away...

I've deleted books at myk, synched, turned the fire off and back on, synched, etc, and the books remain on the carousel. Help.

I really the kindle fire and I am getting more accustomed to it, but this not being easy to delete items is really irritating

I have the exact same problem with books. I deleted two or three from my Kindle account, synched, etc. but they still show up in the carousel. Annoying. It has convinced me to return the Fire and wait for the next edition.

It would be nice if you could actually pick and choose what shows up in the carousel in the first place...I am sure though that this will be updated in the UI sooner or later :-).

Very frustrated to not be able to remove books from the carousel. Also cannot remove deleted app and book icons from their respective sites when in the cloud mode.

AMAZON PLEASE SOON GIVE AN UPDATE THAT ENABLES REMOVAL OF THINGS WE DON'T WANT REMAINING ON THE CAROUSEL!!!

This does not work for books on the carousel nor for app and book icons on their respective sites when in the cloud mode.

I want to be able to clean up my carousel too! I too love my kindle fire, but not being allowed to easily personalize it is very irritating.

I sent a complaint to Amazon about this problem and got the following response:
"Thank you for writing about removing items from your carousel on your Kindle Fire. We appreciate the time that you taken to write us and we wanted to let you know we expect to make this feature available in the next software update for Kindle Fire.

When the software update is ready, your Kindle Fire will update automatically."

Meanwhile, if you really want something removed from your carousel you have to delete (or trash) it from both your Accounts' Media Library (www.amazon.com/Medialibrary) and your Kindle library at (amazon.com/manageyourkindle). Then you must re-sync your Kindle Fire device using the gear Settings icon. Of course you won't be able to access the book after that, but this is the only way I got a title with a lurid cover off my carousel without having to download a bunch of new books to "push" it from the display.

Q ABOUT YOUR KINDLE

Posted on Dec 8, 2011, 6:29:34 PM PST
IS THE KINDLE FIRE THE TOP OF THE LINE IN KINDLE

Yes Please!!!! This is so annoying.

In reply to an earlier post on Dec 8, 2011, 6:47:55 PM PST
No, not really. It is a tablet device that can be used to read books. If reading is your goal, stick with one of the e-ink models.

Thank you E. Hagan. It works. Deleted books are gone from the carousel!!! Now I can consider buying books again from Amazon. Amazon's help on the phone told me there was no way to remove books from carousel.

Just remember everybody to re-sync your Kindle Fire device using the gear Settings icon (upper right corner) after deleting from "Medialibrary" and/or Managing Your Kindle." After deleting the books on "Managing Your Kindle," they nolonger were on my "Medialibrary."

Yes it was a free download that I found uninteresting. Did not want it to take up room when I'll never read at it again.

That makes sense for freebooks. I really dislike the carousel. I think Amazon will do their best to get rid of it when they upgrade the OS. "I hope, I hope. I hope."

Thanks! Yes this works.

I have pressed and held on the cover of something I wanted deleted, then just chose Delete when the menu comes up.... is this not what you want to do? Maybe I misunderstood the question?

I remove books from showing by doing what BeattysGirl does too. I touch the book cover and then touch and hold and two options pop up: Add to favorites or Remove from Device.
