Cannot get sites to Bookmark properly

    Today, when I tried to bookmark some sites, as I clicked & held on the "plus" sign to left of the address line, it would "fizzle out"
    For instance, if I wanted to place the site in a folder halfway town the list, the plus sign would would start off bravely, then swing off to the left, as if going to the main Bookmark folder or to the ReadingList. However, if they went to one of these places, I sure can't find them.
    There is one possible clue. As soon as my mouse hovers over the plus sign, a message (greyed out, like the end of the address appears immediately following the address: "Add page to Reading List."
    Any ideas/help/prayers or potions will be seriously appreciated.

    What browser are you using? What version of OS X are you running? What browser extensions are you using?

    I'm using Safari and Mavericks.
    Don't know what extensions I'm using.
    Can you tell I'm a newbie to Macs?

    Reading list, maybe?


    I'm running Mountain Lion. The + adds a page to the reading list. The share button offers bookmark option.
