I understand this is the most upvoted write-up but ns disagree with the answer. In this instance "pues que" walk not typical "well...", which involves a pause in the sentence.

"Pues que" is more used together emphatization the what come next, favor saying "this and nothing else", and additionally works for not having actually to repeat the inquiry within the answer. Allow me include some examples:

- ¿Qué dare dijo tu padre de mí? (What did your father say around me?)

- Pues que eres muy alto. ( that you are fairly tall).

- ¿Te contó algo Pedro cuando fuisteis a cenar? (Did Pedro tell friend anything once you went out for dinner?)

- Pues que se iba a vivir a México. ( that he to be going to move to Mexico)).

Cheers!

You've currently got the answer yet I wanted to allude something rather out. In between pues and que over there is efficiently an unuttered i which, having a different subject come the one that's in reality there, provides the "que" necessary. It's effectively: Pues, (me han contado) que dare gusta leer

There's a comma missing. It need to read:

"Pues, que te gusta leer"

Meaning "Well, the you like to read". It's just an extra native thrown in there. If you ever before see it and get perplexed just imagine it's not there, and also the sentence will certainly read more or less the same
