i can't read letters in my dreams, but i do know, that what happens is if i'm looking at something, like a book, mag or newspaper whatever information i'm supposed to know is more so given to me versus read. i believe that the act or going thru the motions of reading while dreaming, is the middle man 'tween me and the source of whatever gives the information.

I only remember one dream where I've read anything. I was looking at a carton of milk on a table. It had big black bold letters that said MILK.
It then developed little cartoon dots for eyes and a frowny mouth and told me off, for it was not milk, but a metal.

I'll definately pay more attention to any reading I do in dreams from now on though.

reading in a dream is usually a lucidity trigger for me.

has anybody ever read a comic book in a dream as the story progresses you find yourself in the comic as part of the story? now that's happened to me quite a few times.

From what I remember taking in highschool psych classes (which isn't much, I could very well be mistaken), and a little bit of my own research, it isn't so much that you can't read, but that the words don't stay consistent. As in if you were reading a paragraph in a dream, and looked away and back again, the words wouldn't be in the right order, or would just be different. I know this is how it works for numbers in dreams -try looking at a clock in your dream and then check it again, the time should be totally different -, but I can't remember if this is for words as well

I completely agree with this. All I have is, mostly, just nightmares, but when I do get (kind of) a good night's sleep, I see very life-like dreams. In most of them I have to read something, but every time I go ahead and read the text, I can't see it. It just kinda "pops" in my head. So, at least, in my case, it's impossible to read while sleeping.

I've never before heard that reading in dreams was impossible. I read in dreams all of the time.
