While fishing for free books, I tapped purchase for a book which is larger than 500mb. I've noticed the size only after buying. I paused the download by tapping on the book.

Now I was not able to delete it from iBooks. Is there a way to delete the book from iBooks app? I could download from iCloud anytime. I don't want the book to be display in my iBooks shelf.

Connect your iPad to the computer and let it sync (if necessary). You can then select the book and delete it.
