#BadWordWednesday : Well v. Good


Simple fix:  Well describes an action. Good describes a thing.

Fancy fix:  Well modifies a verb. Good describes a noun.

I learned to read well before I was in the first grade.

However, I did not feel good about reading aloud because I stuttered.

Sometimes. Then it gets complicated. As in:

I would tell my mom that the pie she was baking smells good, even though it did not have a nose.

Try this fix:  I read well. I read good books. I read good books well.
