How do I delete books from my device?

I have moved a few dozen books to my Nexus 7 as a test, and now want to delete some. I can delete from the Aldiko reader by holding the book and pressing the response. As far as I can see there is no way to delete using CC.
Am I missing something?

I was really curious about this as well. Just 'connect' your device to calibre. Then while inside calibre click device. From there you can delete any book you want.

I only see a way to delete books by using the computer. I wish there was a delete button native to the app. Anyone know if one exists and I just have not not found it yet?

You can delete the book from the device using any android file manager, but that doesn't remove the entry from CC's on-board database. An in app button to delete books would be nice but until then you need to use the computer to delete the book or at least remove the entry from CC's android database.

There isn't an in-app deletion button yet. That is one of the things on the todo list, but not as high as making CC work with large numbers of books, and ensuring it doesn't run out of memory during sends.
