this may seem an odd question but I've been looking on the internet for a good book on Elder Scrolls Lore, like an encyclopedia. I can't seem to find anything.
I know there's plenty of sites to find out the info but in a book it's so much more accessible.
Does anyone know of any?

I don't know any other real printed books than the novel duology - but it's placed between Oblivion and Skyrim and kind of expects the reader to know a pretty much about the lore already - and the game guides and companion books, but those are centred on each game in question and lore tends to take a backseat for quests etc. (If you take that road, though, beware unofficial books by fans that might have fandom represented as official lore.)

Shame, It's so hard keeping up with all the Lore, that's why I struggle. I can't remember it all lol.
I reckon I could goto university and do a whole 2 or 3 years on the subject :p

And TESO will just add to that... The lore is in bit of a flux, perhaps more than in many other fictional universes, so perhaps that's one reason for a lack of a "proper" encyclopedia-type work. Just think of how Cyrodiil's non-jungle appearance in TESO demands yet another - in this case a Daedric, if I remember correctly - explanation according to devs.

Nearly every Lore background information was given within books and diylogues within the games. The best way to get information without playing all the games is e g

hope this helped

Also, you can find here some info about the story that the on-line game will move around and the stories of the alliances: http://elderscrollsonline.com/en/game-guide/story ...not really much though...
