KDP Bookshelf

Your Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP) Bookshelf is the hub of your KDP account. You can navigate your account, view and organize your existing titles, and create a new book or series. From your KDP Bookshelf, you can update existing book details like the description, cover image, and list price. If you would like to remove a previously published title from Amazon, you can unpublish it from your Bookshelf. If your book was never published, you will have the option to delete it.


Bookshelf view options

Your KDP Bookshelf includes four different views of your titles:

  • Your titles is your default view and does not include archived titles.
  • Series titles only shows titles you included in a series, and does not include archived titles.
  • Archived titles shows titles you archived.
  • All titles shows all of your titles.

View title details

Use your KDP Bookshelf to check your book’s status and view the following details:

Organize your titles

The archive feature allows you to hide titles from your default Bookshelf view without changing its status or availability on Amazon. To archive a title:

  1. Go to your Bookshelf.
  2. Next to the book you want to archive, click the ellipsis button (“…”).
  3. Choose Archive title from the menu.
  4. Click Archive to confirm.

You can return archived titles to your default Bookshelf view by clicking Unarchive title from the same ellipsis button (“...”). For linked titles, you will only need to select Archive title for one format to archive all linked title formats.
