    I want to delete free sample books from my iPad.
    I haven't paid for them, and I haven't downloaded any more than the free sample pages, but the book titles lurk on my 'purchased' page (rather than on my library shelves where deleting them is straightforward) and I can't figure out how to bin them permanently from that location as well. Any advice? Thanks, bluenote

    That listing isn't on you iPad. It's a feature of the iBook Store, there for your convenience if you should ever need to re-download a book you've already purchased. If there is a way to remove books from that list, I can't find it.

    None of my free sample books show up in that list, including the one I haven't deleted from the library yet.

    I have an accumulation of books that I would like to delete forever. Why isn't it possible? I need the space?

    I meant to write "I need the space!!!"

    Books deleted from your iPad, but still in your purchased list are taking up no memory on your iPad.

    Why are some of them in duplicate?

    Do you mean that you have two copies of some books, or one full copy and one sample.
