The process is slightly different depending how you get your eBooks.  For most kinds of eBooks, it is relatively easy to return it early.

For Kindle:
Log into your Amazon account online, and choose "Manage Your Kindle".  You will see a list of all the books you have on your Kindle device.  If you click on the "Actions..." button to the right of your library book, one of the options should say "Return this book".  After choosing that option, you simply need to delete the title from your device.

For all other eBooks:

Downloaded with your computer:  If you have downloaded an eBook to your computer using Adobe Digital Editions, and then transferred it (or not) to your Nook, Sony eReader, etc., then to return an eBook early in Adobe Digital Editions, click the library icon. In the large black screen, hover over the title you want to return. In the upper left hand corner you will see a small black arrow. Click the arrow and in the drop-down menu click "Return Borrowed Item". 

Downloaded with your Mobile device:  For those downloading wirelessly via an iPad, Android, Nook color, or other device through Overdrive, pull up your list of books in Overdrive and rest your finger on the image of the book you wish to return. The Return/Delete option should appear.  Choose this option.
