Are Kindle Books automatically removed from my Kindle or Kindle reading app?

Once the lending period for a Kindle Book ends, it is automatically returned to your library. Expired Kindle Books still appear on your Kindle device or reading app but can't be opened. You can remove them from your Kindle device or reading app using these steps:

  1. On Amazon's website, go to your "Content & Devices" page, then select Books.
  2. Select the checkboxes next to the books you'd like to remove.
  3. Select Delete (in the action bar above the list of books).
    The delete button appears above the list of titles, in a bar of other actions, like Select all
  4. Select Yes, delete permanently to confirm.

This permanently deletes the books from your Amazon account. They will be removed from your Kindle device or reading app the next time you sync.
