    How do I get back a kindle book that I deleted in error after it said that I couldn't read the edition I purchased?

    Find it there then redownload it. If you deleted the book from your "manage your kindle" while signed on to your account, it's gone forever. LadyH95 says: If all you did was remove it from your device, you can (from your Kindle) press HOME, then press MENU, then select "View Archived Items".2 Jun 2011 Customer Discussions: recover deleted book How do get back kindle book Google Search

    How do I archive a book and how do I retrieve a book from archives since you guys reconfigured my kindle?

    Do you mean they are not on your carousel? Your kindle may be deleting them to make room for more books since they have a limited amount of space. Any of your books are still on your amazon account and can be downloaded again at anytime at no additional charge.

    Accidentally deleted a b ook I just bought

    If you deleted it from the Kindle it will still be on your Amazon account in your archive/cloud.

    From your HOME page click Cloud/Archive, possibly sort by most recent, touch the book title and download it again to your kindle.

    If you deleted it using MANAGE MY ACCOUNT then you will need to contact Amazon Customer Services using the HELP button. They may help you if it's rare event.
