If you have a Nook Classic:
1) Go to My Library
2) Use the arrows to highlight the item you want to get rid of.
3) Select Item details & options
4) Select Archive
Note that this removes the item ONLY from your Nook. The item remains on your BN Library, should you ever decide you want to reload it again. If it is non-BN purchased materials, you are responsible for "saving" a copy somewhere, should you ever need it again.
Now, DELETING a BN book is done from your online BN Library, however, this is a one-way road. Should you ever want it back again, you will have to repurchase it.
If you have a Nook Color:
1) Go to Library.
2) Press and hold your finger (you can do this lightly) on the book that you wish to Archive.
3) Choose Archive from the popup menu that results.
Same thing...BN books are still available on your online BN Library account, should you ever want to reload them or delete them altogether.

Just in case I misunderstood you (which may be the case), try touching and holding a finger on the book on your home screen in Nook Color. I bet that the option to remove it pops up in a menu there.
