Kristy to the rescue!
I have written a couple times about my annoyance with Google Reader’s new layout, and specifically, how the redesign strips away the Add Subscription button (my primary means for adding new feeds). However, Kristy, one of my amazing readers, has provided the answerâ€¦
Here is the workaround
To the left of the My Subscriptions Dropdown you can see a very small arrow
Simply click the arrow and it will expose the Add Subscription button
