How do I permanently delete books from ibooks purchases?  I think this would also apply to all purchases such as movies, TV Shows and books.

You can't, but you can hide them by going through iTunes on a computer.

    This is lame.  If you could hide an app or tv show and never be reminded about it again, then fine but you will get reminded of this "pending download" everytime you click on "check for available downloads".  If you aren't careful, you can spend a lot of bandwidth downloading something you just don't want.

     

    I downloaded a free TV show and now I can't get iTunes to forget about it completely.  What I want is to remove it from iTunes AND my account so it's as if I never bought it in the first place (even though it was free).

     

    C'mon Apple, think of the user for a change...and yes, I know you can contact Apple tech support and they will remove it but who uses the telephone if you can do it online?

    How do I permanently delete books from ibooks purchases?

     

    This question hasn't been addressed since 2012... Is there any new info on this subject? I'm tired of seeing the ones I no longer want every time I open the iBooks application. I can't hide them either in iBooks or though iTunes.
