On Kindle Paperwhite, I delete books after reading, but they still appear on the lst in shadow. I wnat them gone, too many books on this device right now to scroll through. How do I make them go away?

I have a lot of books downloaded to Kindle. After reading, I delete them, but they still appear in shadow/light font on my lists. I want to remove them permanently, so I don't have to keep scrolling past books I've finished. How can I do that?

I guess you're trying to eject the Kindle from the task bar "(safely remove hardware". Try going into Start/Computer/right click on Kindle/ select eject. This worked for me when I had the same problem.

Yes, the font can be made larger. The largest font on the kindle will display only a couple words per page, alot larger than your average book!

I have a gen. 2 Kindle Paperwhite that is locked in sleep mode. Is there a way to unlock this without losing all the data?

The paperwhite is only for reading books. As to the books you never lose them unless you go to your online kindle account and delete them from there. All info on your reader is also stored in the cloud.
To do the reset press and hold the start button for 20-30 seconds. Release, you will see some flashing which is normal. Then you will see the load bar. Just leave it until it settles down. You should be able to access you books after that.
