How to Delete Ebooks from Kindle Android App

One of the things I love most about the Amazon Kindle app is having a massive library of books I can take with me anywhere. The one downside to this is all those books take up space on my Android phone. While buying a larger MicroSD card certainly helps with the space issue, there are books in my Kindle library I’m unlikely to ever read again. In an effort to conserve space on my phone, it’s easier to simply delete ebooks from the Android Kindle app.



The video above shows you how to delete ebooks from the Kindle Android app, but I’ll also describe the process here as well. When you open the Kindle app on your Android phone start by making sure you are on the Kindle Home screen. You can get to the Kindle Home screen by tapping the Android menu button and pressing Home.
Once you are on the Home screen, tap the menu button and click More. You should see an option to Remove Items. By tapping Remove Items, you get a list of all Kindle ebooks on your phone. Check the box next to each ebook you want to delete from the Kindle app. Once you select all ebooks to delete, tap Remove.
If you ever want to read the same ebook on your phone again, simply look at the list of Archived Items and select the ebook you want to download.
