    The instructions for iPhone don’t work. When you tap delete, the book is deleted. It does NOT give you an option to Return and Delete.

    I was away from a wireless connection while on vacation, so my ebook was returned “late.” Will there be a fine?

      No problem, James. No fines on ebooks. Your ebook was actually “returned” within the system automatically on the due date. When you had access to wifi again, your software updated the information on your device.

    Android instructions above say:
    Tap and hold the eBook you want to return
    Tap ‘Delete’ to display the return options
    Tap ‘Return and Delete’
    On my HTC EVO when I ‘tap & hold’ then press ‘delete’ the only options I get are
    ‘delete’ and ‘cancel’
    When I check “” the book I deleted is still an item out so I am still unable to replace that book with a new one.
