After some confusion, tower called us and asked why we were on runway 31. Before we could respond, he issued new taxi instructions. Callback conversation with reporter revealed the following information: reporter stated they were not using the airport chart after clearing the runway. They were completing the after landing checklist and following traffic ahead on the runway. Reporter said better taxi signage would have helped.
