I was wondering if anyone could tell me how I can get my books just on cloud until I want to read one, then move it over to device.
At present all my books are on device and cloud.

thank you

When you want to read one, download it to your device. When you're done just delete from the device and it will remain in the cloud.

Hi GnomeEd
Thank you for replying.
All the books are downloaded to my device, no idea how that happened lol
So I guess I just delete them from the device and they will be in Cloud till I need them.
Thanks again , very helpful :)

Are you sure they ar actually downloaded to the device instead of just getting a list of books in the cloud?

When I am in device and I click on a book , it opens for me to read.
So I thought that they were downloaded.

If you can read it then yes it's downloaded.

It only takes a few seconds to download a book if you have a fast internet connection, so it's entirely possible you're seeing your cloud unless you've downloaded them yourself.

If you have a Kindle Fire it can be difficult to tell books on the device from those on the cloud. If you're using an e-ink kindle than you'll see only one or the other but on the Fire they're kind of mixed up in the carousel.
