I'd do nothing but reading if I could (ok, maybe eat some great food, buy some fancy shoes between two books...oh, and spend some quality time with the gorgeous guy I married while I am on reading-break anyway...)
I dare to disagree:
"He always took pride in that since he had been told that dreaming in color was a sign of intelligence. He just assumed audio dreaming was an even greater sign of intelligence."
First of all: No. Just no. The guy didn't show any kind of intelligence yet.
Second: No. I call bullshit. Dreaming in color has no scientifically verifiable connection to intelligence. The only correlation two Russian scientists, Mjassnikow and Uskow, argued was, that it ties to personality (colorful for creative, expressive personalities, b/w for rational personalities).
DNF, where are you, when I am in need?
Morbid fascination, like watching a car crash, keeps me on board a little while longer...
