Books can be a great source of knowledge and entertainment, and in our dreams they often symbolize learning or the need to escape from reality. As there are many different types of books and ways that books can appear in our dreams, there are also different possible interpretations of dreams.

What do the books symbolize? What does it mean to dream of books?

Books can have different meanings in our dreams. It is important when trying to understand your dream about books to think about the context in which you saw the book in your dream. For example, dreaming of seeing a tall stack of books on a table with a feeling of anxiety about an upcoming exam is a totally different feeling than dreaming of a being in a field while reading a book quietly in the sun.

Here are some of the common associations we have with books and what it could mean in your dream:

  • Wisdom and Knowledge : Books are a great source of knowledge and research. Dreaming of a book often symbolizes the desire to learn something.
  • Truth and Judgment: A book can sometimes be a symbol of truth or judgment. Many religions have important books. Laws and judges are often depicted with a gavel resting on law and legal books.
  • Record keeping: Many people have traveled to the Akashic records in their dreams, and books are often a prominent vision associated with this. This is because books are a great way to keep track of things! Dreaming of a book may mean that you need to look closely at the details or look at the sequence of events in order to understand and solve current problems in your daily life.
  • Studying for a test: We often associate books with going to school and studying for a test. Is there something in your current life that makes you feel scrutinized? Maybe you feel tested at work, or feel like your patience is being tested with a situation in your everyday life.
  • Communication and expression: A book is a form of communication. Many people share their thoughts and ideas through books. Pay attention to the other details of the dream: Is there a message or something that is being communicated to you? Conversely, a book can also mean that there is something you want to say to others but cannot. Is there something you wish you could tell someone but can’t? While these general meanings are helpful in starting to identify what it might mean to dream about books, it can also be very helpful to look at the different types of books and what they might mean. After all, there are all kinds of books, from cookbooks to yearbooks.
