It would be wise to note that this click-hold-drag procedure for creating a bookmark requires good aim and steady hands.
Remember the good old days -- yesterday -- when you could click, choose a collection &/or folder from the drop-down list and know your bookmark would land in the desired location? Better still, you could count on that same collection/folder being offered as your preferred location for subsequent bookmarks.
Ah, yes, the good old days. ;-)

Glad that helped. You can also drag the page URL from the address field to the sidebar. This enables you to place the bookmark exactly where you want it in sequence in a folder or sub-folder. It still requires some dexterity!

I am experiencing the same with the +icon by the URL, my bookmarks now go to "Reading List." You can press Command/D keys to get the "old" effect of saving book marks to certain folders. I don't like the new v.7.0 bookmark approach.

Yes, the good old days, when you also had a chance to edit the sloppy descriptions that some webpage designers use to define their webpages. Such as, for instance, descriptions having absolutely nothing to indicate the name of the company whose page you're trying to bookmark.
Command-D does work, but I agree with the OP: the old way was better, and I'd like to disable the reading list. I never use it. I bookmark things in an organized fashion, and the new Safari seems to do everything it can to get in the way of doing so.

For those whom it may assist, I stumbled on another way to edit bookmarks.
Click on the book symbol to open the sidebar.
Click on the folder that contains you target bookmark
RIght-Click (or Control-Click) on the bookmark
The contextual menu that appears offers options for renaming the bookmark or editing its address.
I hope this helps

Urgh, yes, those page descriptions! I'd gotten to the point, where I'd just put one or more "-" or "=" symbols in front of a bookmark's description to identify How important it was to go back to later.
I'd suspect that the old way was also more helpful to people with accessibility issues. A bit less hopping between mouse/trackpad & keyboard. I'm not a big "shortcut" fan for the same reason. My keyboard spends most of it's time standing on it's side, propped against the wall. I'm All about the trackpad.
