Certainly. But not currently from the NOOK itself. But note that if you purchased a book from B&N you will not want to delete it, unless you really hated the book, as it will be permanently gone. You want to archive it, and if you want to not normally see it on your Nook there is an option for B&N content to hide archived.
To delete B&N eBooks you currently have to use their web site For side-loaded content you have to do it from your PC.

Short answer: Yes.
If it's a book you bought and downloaded from Barnes & Noble, you can go to My Library -> Put the cursor over the book in question -> Click "View Item Details & Options" -> Click "Archive" (you might have to scroll down a tad to find that option), and when it asks you, click "OK" to archive the book. That doesn't actually delete the book, but it removes it from your eReader, and you can download it again, later.
If you truly want to delete (removing access unless you buy it again), go to BN.com -> Click "My B&N" -> Log in -> Click "Visit Your eBooks Library " -> Find the book you want and click "Delete". Warning: This is permanent, and you won't be able to read the book again unless and until you buy it again.
If it's a book that you've sideloaded to your reader, you can hook your nook up to a computer again, and just open nook directory, open the "my documents" folder (in which the unwanted document resides) and delete it as you would any file.

If there is an arrow ( >) at the end of a line on the touch screen, tapping that menu line will bring up additional options.
You may also need to scroll down on the touch screen to see every option. Scrolling down can be a bit counter intuitive if you dont use something like an ipod or itouch. The possibility of scrolling is indicated by the fact the vertical bar at the right of the touch screen is darker in some places than others. Try swiping down when you think you need to swipe up and vice versa, good luck!

My husband and I share our account. If I archive a book i've read on my Nook - will it still be "un-archived" on my husband's Nook?
