New Audible app upgrade resolves delete problem: can someone give me a step-by-step guide please?

iOS & iPadOS

Hi everyone,
I must have asked this question many times but have never totally been able to use the function correctly. However, as the latest upgrade of the Audible app porportidly resolves the problem of deleting books, can someone please write me a step-by-step guide of how to do it?
I have approximately 80 books on my Audible app and want to get rid of those I have read as I 'can't see the wood for the trees'. I am also a little confused about why my books go right onto the cloud rather than into device and all that sort of stuff.

Thank you,

Hi Steven,
The new app works very well I'm pleased to say. 1: hit the delete button.
2: navigate to the title you want to remove.
3: a delete button will appear underneath the book information and the more menu button.
4: double tap it and the book will be deleted from the device. You will need to refresh your library for the changes to take effect.

I forgot to mention that in order to delete books, you need to activate the device tab first.

Hi Darren12,
Brilliant and thank you. I'm sure this process was much more difficult to achieve in earlier versions of Audible. I remember trying to follow a large number of steps in trying to delete books which never worked. I particularly remember a delete key on the right hand of the app towards the top that did nothing at all. The process is eadsy now.
