comment Can I use “We” to refer to me and the reader?
Yes, but you are talking about a paper and I am talking about a thesis, which is written by one author only.

comment Can I use “We” to refer to me and the reader?
Good note. I like the "you" idea to be honest, but some people don't like the idea of talking to the reader directly, because it will sound like a lecture. Thinking this way, I came to realise that using "We" to refer to I is also making it sounds like a lecture, so I think the best answer is @Kate's.

+1 point for Microsoft Word hint, though I don't usually use MSWord, as I moved to Linux.

The problem with bullets is that it is too structured, and for some reasons it seems that readers don't like that! That's not my personal opinion, though, it is what I hear from many frequently. Personally, whenever I read a book, I get attracted to bullets and numberings, because I feel they are giving the important bit of information in the section.
