This will need a factory settings reset which will not erase your ebook however if you loose from the kindle you can download it back from the amazon Kindle account.

how do I go about this?
Expert:  Michelle replied 2 years ago.
To hard reset your kindle, you want to make that the kindle is turned “ON”. While it is ON, open the back cover of the device and look for the reset button. After finding the reset button, look for small and pointed object to press it with (a paperclip or pen is perfect) and press the reset button for 30 seconds or until the Kindle powers OFF. At this point, you do not have to do anything, all you need to do is wait for your kindle while it reboots itself.
