BUGGED BOOKS Patch 3.2.5
This Spreadsheet is an ongoing list of problem books and fixed books
: Eidetic Memory Bugged Books List
This is an on-going effort to make certain that all books listed in the Eidetic Memory are accessible to all characters, so that 100% completion of the Eidetic Memory may be obtained (between DLCs and Chapters of course!)
There are a few problems that arise that cause books to become inaccessible:
1. They exist inside an area only accessible while the character has the quest. Reading these is not a requirement on the quest.
2. They are a quest item, they may start the quest and/or be read during the quest, but after the quest they have no location in the world. Some of these MUST be read in the quest inventory while on the quest in order to register.
3. Phasing. Some areas in the world change as the character progresses the story in the area and some books are only seen before the story is done.
4. Alliance restricted (this applies to a very few books that only exist within the alliance bases in Cyrodiil)
Last but not least, Community help to locate missing books. It would be great if ZoS could confirm books the Community cannot locate are actually in the game:)

Imperial City Bookshelf Guide
This is the route I take through IC to check the bookshelves. I play EP and this may not be the most logical route for your character. I tried to show the path as clearly as I can (yay Paint!) but the maps aren't that detailed to begin with. I also took a screenshot at each bookcase to hopefully help you locate them all:)
IC Bookshelf 1:
IC Bookshelf 2:
IC Bookshelf 3:
Jump down to reach bookshelf 3.
IC Bookshelf 4:
IC Bookshelf 5:
Bookshelf 5 is in the same room as bookshelf 4.

Elven Gardens District
IC Bookshelf 10:
There is also a bookshelf under the capture area in this district.

aka the "book stacks"
Not on my map, thanks for those who found these additional bookshelves.
8 Bookshelves in Temple of Rectory in SE Memorial
1 Bookshelf in Elven Gardens under the Flag
I found no bookshelves in the Arena or Arboretum districts.
Try these tips/locations if you have trouble finding the following books.

- The Hidden Key: Mysteries and Clues:
- Knowing Satakal: Devoted and Deranged: IC Bookshelf (Book Stack room in Memorial)
- The Fires Guide the Way: Mysteries and Clues: Shada's Tear, Craglorn in the City District, book starts quest (repeatable) and the prompt on read says "The Light Holds the Way" instead of the proper title.

- Letter to Egranor: Letters and Missives:

Happy Book Hunting All!
