Books DON"T READ!!!
But they can read well.
<i>This</i> sentence is correct.
please an english expert the answers,so that we know the answer
Here the verb "read" is middle voice, which means it is grammatically active but semantically passive. So the sentence "The book reads well" means "One reads the book well".
do you mean that the sentence is grammatically correct

It is grammatically correct.
For example, it's a bit like saying, "The car drives well." Obviously we don't mean that the car is a good driver, but that it is good to drive. Same.
