Go to Google Play Books, find the book(s), click on the menu (three vertical dots), choose "Remove from my library", and agree to the confirmation that pops up. The books should now be gone from your library and will, once your device syncs, be gone from the device as well.

I checked several sources on this. Googles own help page states: The Google Play Books app automatically stores books in the location with the most free space, whether that's your device or your SD card, as of when the app was first launched. If you've upgraded your app, your books will continue to be stored in the same location they were before the ...

Turns out the last paragraph added to the book is meant and of course not turning it in the overview. This is the information: This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project to make the world’s books discoverable online. It has survived long enough for ...

Amazon has just updated their Kindle app to offer a two column layout for tablets. I was thrilled that they did this.

I'm afraid this is impossible. It's the number one most requested feature but, as far as I can tell, there are no plans to implement it. I suspect this is because Google is under quite a lot of fire for enabling piracy. Allowing people to load their own books into the books app would intensify that.

I don't think Google Books has a voice interface, which is a shame. I don't know of any book app which does, I'm afraid. Moon+ Reader is a great ebook app which has auto page turning, based on time, but they are very active and are always adding features - it may be worth emailing them and asking if they will implement it?

Google books are filed as cryptic alphanumeric IDs, and they seem to be HTML type files it makes it more difficult than with most other book types. finding books on your device is very easy, use an explorer like File Expert or Astro (both are free, however Astro's ...
