How do I "read" someone? I can't seem to find how to add someone. Thanks!

    If you click on the person's name or avatar, it will take you to their myCHOW page. There, under their name & avatar (upper right corner of the page) you'll see the option to add them to your reading list.

        Jane, I just tried this and I never saw the option. I wonder what is wrong?

          I clicked on your name & in the upper right corner got the following under your pic:

            Thank you, Babette. I still am not seeing this on my computer. I'm really confused about this! :(

              You don't see it on your own "my CHOW" page, only on another person's page after you click on their name / avatar.

                Just a thought -- is it possible that you're logged in on Chowhound.com but not on Chow.com? If you're not logged in on chow.com, where 'my chow' resides, you won't see the option to add people to your reading list. Check the upper right corner of your screen to ensure it still says 'Hey, LeahBaila' when you're viewing someone's 'my chow' page.

                  I've done everything you all said; clicking on a user's name/avatar to see if the "add" comes up, and going to both chow and chowhound. I just don't know what is going on?

                      Sorry, I should be more in the habit of signing my posts. We're already on the case.

                      Leah, can you click on my username to view my 'my chow' page, and send me a screenshot at jacquilynne dot schlesier at cnet dot com, please? Hopefully there'll be some clue in the screenshot of what you're not seeing and why.
