I, also, leave on the last page read so I know if I have read it or not.

A non-fiction book that I want to keep on the reader I go back to the cover or the index (if there is a lot of pointless "about" and what have you-pages in teh beginning.

On the Sony I delete other books right away after I've finished them. On the Nook I deleted next time I'm connected to the PC.

I bookmark the last page until I've rated/reviewed it at Goodreads, then delete it next time I connect the reader to calibre.

One of the unexpected answers is that some delete books after being read. Not something I've ever considered and seems odd given the amount of storage on book readers

I do that in order to avoid to browse through too many books in the library, whether using shelves or not. Oh and also to prevent battery drains or sluggishness (it might happen, maybe, when the device has over a certain amount of books).
Basically it's for the first reason And I do the same with my music player, I don't keep too many files. I prefer to rotate them.

The books on my reader is my high priority queue of books to read. So I delete the books when I have read them. And why does it matter? I nearlyt always have network available and can re-download the book whenever I want.

I would say that in this age of never being disconnected from the net it is surprising that people want to save things locally on devices.

I have all my books backed up in calibre, and I always forget titles that I've read anyway, so I delete them from my kindle when I'm done. To me, it feels not like deleting a book or throwing it away as it feels like putting the book back on the shelf when I'm done.

Tsk. Tsk. Do you realize how many trees they cut down to make an ereader? Not to mention how much money you're wasting? You could save the environment and recoup a couple of dollars by bringing it to a used book store. Just be sure to flip the book to the first page first, so that it's ready for the next reader.

Or do what I do:

Create a column in calibre named READ and, when finished with the book, just mark 'Y'.

Instead of having a finished column in calibre, I just use the rating column that is a default column.

I do the same. Additionally, I have assigned a color to it that applies to the entire row, making a "have read" book easy to identify.
