There are seven Black Books in total. The wiki page gives these locations:

Epistolary Acumen - Found in Nchardak during the quest "The Path of Knowledge".

Filament and Filigree - Found in Kolbjorn Barrow during the quest "Unearthed".

The Hidden Twilight - Found in Tel Mithryn, next to the Staff Enchanter.

The Sallow Regent - Found in White Ridge Sanctum, you will have to go through the White Ridge Barrow first.

The Winds of Change - Found in Bloodskal Barrow, during the quest "The Final Descent".

Untold Legends - Found in Benkongerike, after the word wall.

Waking Dreams - Found in the Temple of Miraak during the main questline.

You can also get the Black Book locations from Neloth in the quest Lost Knowledge - this is repeatable in the same way you can ask the Grey Beards for word wall locations. Doing it this way nets a handy 1000 Septims for each completion.
