I would like to read chronological order about star wars lore. I have seen the movies and play swtor. But I want to know everything canon. Ty all :-)

I think Wookiepedia has the chronology in order, all 20,000yrs + of SW history.

My approach was to choose an era i.e. Old Republic, New Republic, Legacy Era and then focus on a subsection because there's still well over 1,000yrs in each of those eras.

After a couple years (maybe more) I'm finally starting to get an understanding of the whole chronological history of that Galaxy so far far away...

If you're wanting to actually read the various EU works in chronological order, then you'll want to start with the Tales of the Jedi comic series. At present, those are the earliest works in the universe, though a new ongoing series entitled Dawn of the Jedi will be starting next month. That series will focus on the earliest days of the Jedi Order, before any schisms between light and dark side adherents.

If you're simply wanting to read about the lore, rather than reading the various books and comics themselves, then Wookiepedia will likely be your best option.
