Books are items that can be discovered in The Elder Scrolls Online. There are over 2600 books, notes, journals, etc. to read. Unlike previous games in The Elder Scrolls series, books do not take up inventory space and can be read at any time.

Books can be collected in various ways, such as from bookcases that are not lore specific, or books hidden in dungeons which yield skill line level-ups. Abilities in the Mages Guild skill line will advance when books specific to the guild are collected. For a list of these books, see Shalidor's Library. Other books that are not related to the Mages Guild may be found in the journal under "Eidetic Memory" after the completion of the Mages Guild quest line.
