How do I add someone to "People I'm Reading"?

    To add someone to your reading list click on that person's name in a post he or she has made. That takes you to that person's profile page. Under the avatar there is a statement: "add this user to your reading list." Click on that and the person is added to the list of those folks you want to read..

      but there isn't. there is no statement any more. has that been replaced by the " +follow " button?

          Just another step toward homogenization?

            thank you Jaquilynne. may i ask then why chow doesn't change the headings to people im following and people following me? i understand that consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds and all .....

              Your reading list is in the 'Following' menu on your profile, I suspect the button text was changed to match that. Well, that and 'Add to My Reading List' is a lot of text to put on a prominent button. But the old 'add' link was hard for people to find (I knew where it was and I still couldn't see it half the time) so hopefully the new one, even with some inconsistencies in terminology will be easier.
