Seeming as its 2:30am in the UK and I can't sleep I'll jump in with a reply...
Do you have a link to one of your pages (or a screengrab)
As you say you get 85% traffic to article pages, but no-one hangs around long enough to read anything...
1. Is there something wrong with the overall template of your site? What pages on your site have a low bounce rate? Does an article start half way down the page after a load of ads?
2. Article Layout: Are headings and sub-headings clearly defined using CSS so a visitor can scan through headings to get an idea of the tone of the article.
3: Article Layout: Are paragraphs short and sweet or is the whole article one big paragraph? Can a visitor scan each paragraph and get a feel for the article/point being made?

as it pretty much sums up the questions I asked above.
