How do I take an ebook off my Kobo permanently?

Hi, my name isXXXXX will assist you.
Click on the Kobo drive beside your library in Calibre, and it should show you a list of the books on your device. You can select them there and just press the delete key.

You can also just browse to the Kobo drive using your computer, and manually delete the files yourself. (it appears in My Computer when you connect with USB cable)


Please let me know if this does not work or if you need any other assistance.
Please take a moment to rate my service positively.
Thank you very much!

I have brought up the library on my Kobo showing the list of books but

there is no delete key to press. What do you m3an by "in Calibre", I have never heard that name before

Calibre is an ebook manager, some dont have this. It is a downloadable software.

You can delete a book from your eReader and Kobo account.

  1. Go to your Home screen.
  2. Tap Library.
  3. Tap Books.
  4. Tap and hold the cover or title of the book. A menu will appear.
  5. Tap Remove. A dialog box will appear. The check box beside eReader will be selected.
  6. Choose the option you want:
    • Tap Remove to remove the book from your eReader. You can always re-download the book from the Kobo Cloud.
    • Tap the check box beside Kobo account. Tap Remove to remove the book from your eReader and Kobo account.
