Where can I read of Dark Souls' lore?

Like what is the Lordvessel, how does it work, who was Smough, why that Giant Wolf is just waiting to fight me, Shiva's backstory and stuff like that.

Can you read Japanese? Most of what isn't in the actual game text was in the additional material book released only in Japan.

There are a number of transcribed interviews you can probably find as well.

Unfortunately I can't read japanese and itens detail were not enough to satisfy all my needs for Dark Souls' lore =/

Thank you for the tips regarding the videos, will check unto it!

I thought the Wikia page would have lots of good information, but meh.

A guy named "VaatiVidya" also has some lore videos on Youtube as well. His vids are shorter and have a lil different interpretations from ENB.
