    I've just totally abandoned the homes I built in Falkreath and Morthal. The one in Solitude works pretty well, and the only problems I have with the one in Sol is that it's too dark, and the display cases don't work.

    So, two of my char's live in Sol, their families either at Morthal or Falkreath (remember, I said I abandoned them, not the kid's/wive's), and my third one lives, un-married, but with two adopted children in Whiterun. I leave Lydia with them most of the time, and solo most of my "job's".

    -Ha! If that is really their solution I'm disappointed, but glad you got results. I sent an irate email to the Blizzard team and landed my friends 185 days free game play and a personal call with apology lol. About this obnoxious glitch...on my Xbox 360 I started the quest but after being killed by Miraak I decided to do something else (not very patient lol) since then i have not been able to activate the book, just stare at the unmovable first page. The other books work as well for me. Pretty annoying losing all your dragon souls to Non-Corporeal Jackass Miraak, and there's no way I'm doing the content on another character, 1) I've wasted too many hours getting level 71 Swarles as badass/possession laden 2)This expansion was kinda crap. 3) Serana spazzes out and can't follow you or follows you weirdly from the water in Windhelm eyeballing your new companion... 4) I can't handle another viewing of the catastrophic flight mechanics which I can only assume were cobbled together as an after thought in a dank hole filled with inbred lazy eye'd Art Institute drop outs...

    What gets me is that Bethesda has put out another game that I'd LOVE to have, but if they worked on that game like Skyrim and the add-on's? Forget about it! I'm on SSD, pretty much at home most of the time, and I'm not tossing $60.00 to Bethesda again when they've yet to fix year old (or older!) issue's!

    I´m having a similar issue...with me, it´s been like this: I´ve just killed Miraak and saved the game..right after saving i had to sleep so i turned my ps3 off...when i went back to play it the green power balls that come out of the three holes on the book at the center of the area wouldn´t appear, so i can´t get the reward of waking dreams...

    Have you tried going thru again? I'm not sure, but I think you can again, as long as you're on Sol.

    That's not a glitch. You are missing the reward. I can see one of them in the background. That book works differently than the others. In fact, I think you walked right through the reward structure... the luminous thingys circling the pedestal.

    Also... For those that are having a problem using the book. You can't access it until after the main quest is complete. If you haven't finished the main quest (Dragonborn), you will just stand there and go nowhere. I know I'm stating the obvious here, but... the use of Waking Dreams is the reward for completing the quest. As it should be as it's quite a significant reward.

    Dang! Thought what I found would have helped. I know my first run through it, I was confused until I read on UESP that you have to go to each Ability globe, click on it, and you'll be asked about the perks for Dragon Soul's.

    Then you go back to each Ability and reset your perks as you wish to have them. And I believe doing that is repeatable as well. Except that you won't have to go through it all again, you'll just be in the Book at your Abilities.

    It's the 16th od December 2016 with the release of the "remastered" addition on xbox one and guess what? Same problem still occurs. I cannot enter the book for a second time even though Thorn has died and ive learnt the bend will dragon shout and the quest clearly states "read the damn book" but noooo the creators still couldnt get their act together and solve a simple glitch.

    It's now 2017, with the remastered edition on PS4 and I've had this problem, my very first glitch (already completed this quest on the PS3 version). Still no solution to this glitch via consoles.
