To see books in your dream indicate calmness. You are moving toward your goals at a slow and steady pace. Books also symbolise knowledge, intellect, information and wisdom. In particular, to see an open book in your dream means that you are able to grasp new ideas with ease. If the book is closed, then it represents your allure and mysteriousness. Consider the type of book for additional clues. The dream may represent your calling into a specific field of work or an area that you need to devote more study to. Alternatively, the dream could be telling you not to judge a book by its cover.

To see dusty books in your dream denotes forgotten knowledge or previous “chapters” of your life.
