The interpretation of dreams about reading depends on the context in which they took place and the details that followed them.
Reading a book or newspaper in a dream
If you are dreaming of reading a book or newspaper, it means that you need to invest a lot of effort if you want to achieve success.
You may have overrated yourself, and you expected to be able to make important business and life decisions after spending a short period of time learning or working on something.
Recklessness will bring you many problems, and it will make you go back to the beginning where you will gradually overcome obstacles on your way to success.
To see someone reading a book or newspapers
A dream in which you see someone reading a book or newspaper means that you will overreact to criticism you will receive from a colleague or superior.
They will not understand how much time and energy you have invested in that job which will offend you.
However, you will completely neglect the fact that everyone has the right to state their opinion, whether you like it or not.
Dreaming of reading a letter
When you are dreaming of reading a letter, that symbolizes gain. A relative, who lives abroad, will probably contact you and ask you to do them a favor.
To express their gratitude, they will give you a part of the property that has special and sentimental meaning to you and that they can’t take care of.
Reading out loud to someone
Dreaming of reading a book to someone means that you will make your friends happy. You are a communicative person, and you like to make people from your surroundings happy.
You often give them some interesting and unusual ideas that can lead to new experiences and adventures.
Besides happy moments, you will be with your friends when problems emerge as well or when they need a shoulder to cry on.
Dream meaning of someone reading you a letter
If you are dreaming of someone reading you a letter, it means that you will probably hear bad news.
If you are waiting for the outcome of a business, project, or even a trial, you could be disappointed.
Don’t let that ruin your motivation or plans. Get over it, and dedicate your attention to more constructive things than regret.
To dream of reading comics
If you are dreaming of reading comics, it means that you still don’t want to grow up. You would like to keep that childish spirit that makes you special forever.
That doesn’t mean that you are afraid or that you are avoiding responsibility, but that you feel better and more positive when you know that you have a child’s soul.
Even though people often criticize you because of it, try not to change.
When you see someone else reading comics in a dream, it means that you will probably meet someone who will amaze you with their beliefs and way of thinking.
You will want to spend as much time as possible in their company.
Reading picture books in a dream
When you are dreaming of reading picture books, it means that you are a creative and imaginative person, but that you are not using your talents well enough.
Your current job probably doesn’t ask for such traits. It wouldn’t be a bad idea to transform those talents into a hobby. That could even become your main source of income in the future.
If someone else is reading picture books in your dream, you may have problems in traffic.
You will make a foul that comes with a big sentence, but you will manage to make an agreement with a victim without involving the police.
This will also be a warning not to get comfortable when you are behind the wheel.
To read a dictionary in a dream
If you are dreaming of reading a dictionary, it means that you will take a course or go to some sort of specialization in order to improve your skills and gain more knowledge that will help you make progress at your current job or even find a better one.
A dream in which someone else is reading a dictionary suggests that you are not learning from your own mistakes.
You are often too impulsive, so you don’t listen to advice and you don’t care what other people think of your actions.
You should stop and question your actions since mistakes in the future could cost you a lot.
Dreaming of reading in a foreign language
When you are dreaming of reading something in a foreign language, it means that you probably have problems communicating with your loved ones.
You are often arguing with family members or getting into conflicts with people who don’t share your beliefs.
However, you are wasting a lot of energy when doing that. Try to realize why you act like that. Is a specific problem bothering you, or is this just a temporary phase?
Anyhow, you need to work on it as soon as possible.
Dreaming of someone reading something to you in a foreign language symbolizes a wide chasm between your wishes and real life. You are distancing yourself from your future plans because you lack the energy to achieve them.
Dream about not being able to read
This dream symbolizes your fear of being embarrassed at work. You believe that you are not competent enough to do it, and you are afraid that your superior might replace you with a better employee.
The lack of self-confidence is probably the result of past failures. Ask yourself once more if would anyone pay you if they were not satisfied with your qualifications and skills.
To learn to read
If you are dreaming of learning how to read, it means that you will admit that you have made a mistake and that you will try to do everything in order to make things right.
Even though that will not be a big problem, you will not calm down until you solve it. Your determination and persistence will amaze your colleagues, college professors, or your bosses.
Teaching someone how to read in a dream
When you are dreaming of teaching a child how to read, it means that you are a very patient and tolerant person. Only a few things can make you go crazy.
Your Achilles heel is the injustice that you can’t get over. When you see someone being rude to you or other people who don’t deserve it, you can react very violently.
If, however, you are dreaming of teaching a grown-up how to read, it means that you will have to prove yourself a lot in order to achieve success.
Many obstacles, sabotages, discrimination, and underestimation will stand on your path, but you will not pay attention to that, but courageously fight for your goal.
Such an attitude can get you far.
To not be able to read something
A dream in which you are trying to read something but not being able to see what is being written symbolizes a warning to start watching out for who you are letting into your life.
You have surrounded yourself with people that you are not sure if they are your true friends. Don’t confide in everyone so that you don’t get hurt.
The meanings of dreams can be simpler. If you have recently read something or to someone, that has made an impression on you.
