Problems deleting your entire Reading List?

When you create your Wattpad Account, a default Reading List is created and it cannot be deleted. Though it is not possible to delete your original Reading List, you can delete stories within that Reading List. If your default Reading List is empty, it will not show up for other Wattpaders.

If you are trying to delete any other Reading List you created and experience issues with this, please try out the general troubleshooting steps mentioned in the above section.

If this still doesn't help you with this issue, please submit a Support request to us. You can submit a request by clicking ‘Fix a problem / Contact us’ to the right of or below this article. Make sure to write to us from the email that your account is linked to.
