HeatherTo browse you have to secarh for it. I stumbled through it a week or so ago to find an address when I was lost.I found 2 ways to remove a book. If you go to kindle.amazon.com and log in and browse your books. There's a column for status. Mark the X (remove from my list) and it will drop off next time you are on your account.
