how do I read?

People are telling me they like my writing, this is happening more and more. Everytime this happens I feel like I want to hide, or blush, or deny vehemently. All I know is, I like doing it, I wish I can be better, I wish I’d learnt more, read more, be more perceptive, all those necessary qualities needed to be good.

I wonder how I read? I can never tell. Do I come across as ponderous? Whimsical? Quiet? Am I better at narrative or dialogue? What aboue descriptions? Characterisation? Pacing? I have no idea.

So, really, how do I read?
