Deleting books from Kindle, whether your Kindle device, app, or cloud, isn’t nearly as straightforward as I’d like it to be. Permanently deleting books from Kindle or Kindle Cloud is possible but not obvious; mostly, I think, because Amazon doesn’t want you to accidentally delete a book you’ve purchased. Often, when people want to delete a book from Kindle, what they’re really trying to do is delete the book from their Kindle device or remove it from the Kindle app on iPhone or iPad. But they usually want to keep the Amazon e-book in the Kindle Cloud, since they bought it. There are a lot of different ways to remove or delete Kindle books and a few different places from which you might want to remove or delete them. So we’re going to cover how to delete books from Kindle devices, as well as how to remove books from the Kindle app on iPhone or iPad, and how to permanently delete books from your Kindle Cloud.

Facebook has this nifty little feature called “On This Day” or “Year In Review” that shows you posts from the past and encourages you to share and comment on them, which is great if they’re memories you want to see. However, Facebook selects which pictures to show you based on past interaction, which doesn’t always mean you end up seeing the happiest of memories. There isn’t a blanket way to turn off the feature, but you can designate people and dates you don’t want to be reminded of. You can easily choose to stop setting Facebook memories from within the mobile app. Here’s how to turn off Facebook “On This Day” Memories on iPhone.
