comment Why is it so difficult to recall dreams?
The functional state of mind is so different in sleep than when awake that we cannot easily access the memories from sleep. This happens all the time when being awake too: the state we're having right now can completely wash away the memories of what was 5 minutes ago, when you were in a different state. You could recall them with some effort though, because the change is not big. However, when sleeping, the state is so much different than from awake that we cannot reconstruct it to return to the memories of that state.Creating a mnemonics bridge between sleep and awake, like a journal, helps.

comment Why is it so problematic to read in a dream?
I have experienced difficulties reading in dreams too, many times. From what I have gathered, I remember reading in several various sources that this difficulty is related to the functional change in the brain area responsible for reading during the sleep. The question that seems more interesting to me is do we already know the meaning of the text in our dreams before we even read it? In real life we usually have to read the text first and just then know what is written there. But is it the same for dreams? To produce something that is unknown before recognized back again seems like a paradox.
