There's an important point nestled in here that nobody's mentioned, I think, which is that--thus far--you've only shared your work with friends and family, as well as on the boards. It's very hard to gauge how your work will be received in public through the reactions of those close to you. You might think, "Oh, my family will definitely read my story, because they're my family!" or "They'll give me an honest critique because they know me!" This might be true, but it's much, much easier to procrastinate on something given to you by a family member, because as much as they might want to help out, there's going to be much less of a threat of disappointment. You're not likely to ignore them or tell them off because they didn't get through the whole thing.
If you want to gauge how you might be received by the public, you have to publish something, plain and simple, and not on obscure online forums like TTV (sorry guys )...
As you said, maybe it says something about your skill, maybe not. Again, your family and friends are going to probably be more casual about reading your stuff, and they are more likely to tell you it's good, because they obviously don't want to make you feel bad, regardless of what they think.
All you can do is keep practicing. There's a common adage that says, in order to get truly proficient at something, you have to do it for 10,000 hours. Not in a row, just cumulatively. If you keep honing your skills, reading, and writing everything that you can, you'll be ready to publish in time, and then you can see what the world truly thinks of you...
Here's where my opinion really comes in. I think the answer to your question about whether people no longer like to read is...yes, and also no.
Do people still read fiction and books? Absolutely. Or, at the very least, they buy them. Where the problem arises is in how we're taught to view reading. From an early age, we tell people that they must read, when what we should be doing is allowing them to read and cultivate their own interests. Reading should be a pleasurable activity, but the way we teach it and require it in school makes it a chore, a task that needs to be finished quickly so we can do "more fun" things.
You may think it's because you only read dusty old books in school, but that's not it at all. Many of those books are some of the best ever written, and they should be read by many more people than they actually are. But when a child is given dozens to hundreds of pages a night to read, in preparation for an endless slew of comprehension quizzes that test for useless facts about what they have read, the act of reading is corrupted. Reading becomes less of a matter of learning something, or encountering ideas, and more about wondering which character took a trip to some city in Chapter 25.
If you teach someone to read for ideas, for the simple joy of reading a story, they'll learn far more than they ever do from memorizing names, places, and events, and--surprise, surprise--they'll actually enjoy reading. Instead, we have a society where the phrase, "I don't like to read" is sadly common, because people have been taught to see the very idea of reading as a chore, and this has only been enhanced by the Internet, where the concept of short, quick, easy reading is the norm.
