Can you read in your dreams?

Most people I ask say they can't. If they see a McDonald's sign, the M is recognizable, but the rest of the words are babble, much like they are in comic books when something screws up. On the other hand, I can read like everything is normal. I've re-read entire books from my childhood during a dream, an even had one dream where everyone lived in a house made from a book that was their life story. Everything you did was written down in the book. I had an appointment, so I went for a ride on my magical flying toilet (Don't ask!) and I saw my own book. The words "...and right now he's procrastinating by reading this very sentence instead of getting..." appeared as I hovered overhead.

So, how about you?

I had a dream where I was a trout swimming majestically through a babbling brook, then Anak picked me up and used me as a weapon to give OTF foulers bludgeons :rant: :rant:

I don't often remember my dreams. What I do rarely recall is usually the "gist" rather than specifics. I don't recall reading, however.

i once had a dream where i was reading a book that was titled "how to solve world hunger and other worldwide problems". there were a bunch of equations and reading that made sense and they would probobly work too. i still know what they say, but i dont pay much attention to them.

I have read stuff rarely in dreams

now a new question: Have you ever seen your reflection in a dream?

Ive seen many mirrors and water sources but never my own reflection.. How bout everyone else?
 
I'm not sure it is really reading but I know I at least understand what it is supposed to mean. I know once I am awake I can read the memory of it. I remember a Batman episode he said he knew he was in a dream becuase he couldn't read. . . Can anyone confirm? Anyee?

I just dream about situational comedy and... well.. situations. Not good situations, not bad ones, just average ones... Like sharpening a pencil or walking just to look cool.

Well, the only time i remember reading in dreams is once i was looking at this strange trading card that had all this info in japanese and the card was informing me the monster on the card had a monster-type was crystal. When i flipped the card over it was all shiny and i got easily distracted after that.

I, for one, constantly and vividly remember my dreams and can also claim to have read in them. One instance was the word "STRAWBERRY" as a headline on a newspaper and also the word "angle", which turned out to be an answer on a pop-quiz the following day.
As to the reflection statement, In a recent dream I had an argument with 8 different, fragmented versions of myself, all sitting in enourmous luxury chairs next to a roaring fireplace, does that count?

I know exactly what your friends mean. I can't read in my dreams. Words are blurred out.

ive read in my dreams, i had one recently, it involved an AIM conversation. heh, yeah, crazy.

but the thing is, i could read it, but when i would want to re-read it, it was all blurry... hmm? maybe its cuz i couldnt remember what it was as i was dreaming, but as i was typing i coudl read it, just when i wanted to go back it was blurry -- strange :scratch:

You fools dream about words. There's nothing to read in my dreams, unless there's something actually written on the boobies.
