I don’t often remember my dreams. I sleep soundly, and I don’t often wake during one, which is what science tells me is required for me to know what I’ve dreamed of. Even when I do awake in the morning from a dream, I often can’t remember it for long. But last night, suddenly, I awoke at 4 a.m., and I remember my dream.
I was dreaming away, with characters going this way and that, speaking their lines. When I couldn’t understand part of a line, I saw in front of me a book’s page, as if I was rereading those couple words to make sure I knew what was going on, refocusing.
Apparently I read in my dreams!
I have never knowingly experienced this before. I have no idea what book I was reading; by now, I’ve even forgotten the words I intently studied in my dream.
Do any of you read in your dreams?
