    Go the book you want to delete from your library (need to be on the main page in Kobo), touch the screen to the side of the book and hold it for 2 seconds. A menu will pop up and it'll say:

    Read Now
    Remove from Library

    Touch "remove from library" and you're done.

    Just press and hold anywhere on the book (icon or title) in the library and you will see the popup menu.

    Any chance I can see an ePub book imported from my PC at the Kobo app? I mean, can I see a book that has not been purchased at the store in the app? Where does Kobo store the books at the Playbook? Is there any folder I could see when Playbook and PC are connected?
    Thank you !!!!!!!!!!!!

    So far I do not believe anyone has found a way to sideload (that's what it is called to directly place a book where the app could read it) books into the Kobo app.

    Go to the main Kobo page that shows all the books in your library.

    Don't touch the icon of the book you want to delete. Just put your finger next to it for 2 seconds and another menu will pop up asking what you want to do, to read it or delete it.

    If you touch the book it'll open the book up for you.

    Kobo's website states that you can download your books from its library as pdf or epub format, but I've yet to get that to work. I don't believe it supports importing epub formats unless you're using the Android version sideloaded...to which the oldest working version (3.1.1217) doesn't support that function.

    Best bet would be epub reader in BlackBerry World.
