have you done a reboot (not the same as turning off and on, with the wireless on? If not, turn on wireless and then hold the on/off button for a full 30 seconds ignoring and messages that come up, then let it come back up and on your Home page, highlight first Cloud and then Device and see if your books are there

it's also possible that all your books were in Collections and they're all set to not appear on the Home page, so change the middle setting to Collections and make sure at least one of them has a star on it, them switch back to this view:

Cloud | On Device (highlighted) | All/My Items | Collections

when you click on Manage Your Content and Devices (under the Your Account menu on this webpage) do you see your books? And when you select Devices, do you see your Kindle listed? If you don't see the kindle, then you may have accidentally created a second account and if you see the kindle, but not your books, then you are not registered to the account with the books.
