Deleting books off of original Nook

Is there a way to delete all but one book off of the Nook without deregistering and erasing them all? I don't want them archived, I want them completely off. I am going to borrow my Nook out to my 9 y.o. niece and there are some of my books I don't want her to have access to.

I thought if I archived them and then turned on airplane mode, they couldn't be re-downloaded but that wasn't the case. I was able to get them back in airplane mode, which I don't understand. Therefore, I need to get them completely off. I also tried to plug in to my computer and manually delete them. I deleted a whole bunch of e-pub files out of the "My B&N Downloads" file but apparently that wasn't correct either because they are still showing up in my library. WTF? I don't get it!

You can deregister the nook, yes, deleting them all, and then sideload the books you want to leave on it from the My B&N Downloads folder (they will show up in My Documents). When you reregister all the books will turn up again.

I can't think of any other way.

I've been using Calibre to delete my sideloaded books off my Nook.

You can't do a temporary delete on the B&N books, though. You can archive and hide them, or delete them from the account in which case you can never access them again on any device, or you can deregister and lose the books from the device only, but that's about it.
