I was going to mention this, but I wanted to check what the behaviour was, specifically on iOS as that's where my forte lies. I had a feeling that when a book is deleted on iOS that it is removed from I'm Reading and the Purchased list. I've confirmed this is not the case, it is only removed from I'm Reading.

Also something I was going to mention. I held off for the reason you mention that if a book is removed from the trash list, ie; it is completely deleted from the lists, then you have to contact customer care to get it back on your I'm Reading list. This is a little frustrating as there should be something on the book item page which does the same as bookmarking the book on the Purchased page to get the book added back to I'm Reading, without the need to contact CC. I'm not sure why there isn't such an option.

The only workaround I have is to make sure you never delete a book from your trash, as that will allow you to go back and put it on the I'm Reading list.
