I've been really into reading other peoples dreams, as well as my own, and i've been into it ever since i was a kid.
Are there any dream journal-esque books you guys recommend or do you know where i can buy other people's dream journals?

I can't offer too much but your Image reminded me that the PSX game LSD dream emulator came with a sample of the creator's dream diary. I believe it was translated into English by fans a while back.

IIRC several famous artists like kafka and dali noted down their dreams in their diaries to use as reference. But I don't know if those materials were ever reprinted or if they only exist in private collections. Wikipedia has this list of dream diaries (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_dream_diaries) but I don't know how complete it is, and some may not be translated or easy to find.

Other than that I don't really know how many dream diaries have been published in the mainstream though you can often find people's dreams on lucid dreaming forums and such. Also on chans like 420 chan has a dream board and at least one big thread recounting dreams, there's a dream thread on tohno's /ot/, uboachan has an old dream thread. There are probably others too. You might also want to search for old dream related blogspots and livejournals on google by restricting the search to those domains eg. Site:*blogspot.com "dream" "Diary"|"Journal"(don't know if google still uses those operators so you might have to change things to get it to work).

If you want dream-like fiction you should check out short stories like those of Jorge Luis Borges, Kafka, and even plays like those of Samuel Beckett and other early absurdists and surrealists.

Sorry if none of that was what you wanted OP. Hopefully someone more informed than I will come along.

A lot of the textboards have a dedicated dream thread. They aren't journals, since everyone is posting, but you can still read them.
