    You can delete books from the bookshelf in the iBooks app via the Edit button at the top of the bookshelf - that won't remove them from your computer's iTunes nor from the store. You should be able to re-download them via the Purchased tab in the ibookstore in the iBooks app, but as there is no guarantee that a book (or any other item from the store) will remain in the store for future re-downloading, then if you haven't already got a copy then you should first copy it to your computer's iTunes via File > Devices > Transfer Purchases so that you can take a backup of it and be able to re-sync it back.
