How can I reset my library to contain no books without deleting the actual books (and without having to delete each entry one at a time)?

When I open Microsoft Reader, the library contains thirteen pages of books; many are duplicates because I rebuilt most of the ebooks. How can I delete the contents of the library en masse without deleting the actual ebooks that the entries refer to? At least in Windows Media Player I am given the ability to select all titles, then asked if I want to delete the library references or the actual files.

This is only a suggestion ok, always make copies or backup first.
If you know to the location of the original; you could copy that rename it old.

Best suggestion organize items in your Library to appear by title, author, last read, eBook size, or date acquired.
Then delete the duplicates.
