FYI, since the wiring diagrams are just diagrams, the reading lamp wiring for the above is as follows:

Hot from accessory breaker on back of speedo cluster, then behind glove box, up the pillar, under the headliner to the reading lamp, thru the bulb and then to the switch on the pillar. The switch grounds the circuit to the body and lights the bulb. The wiring does not appear to be connected to the door switches.

You are correct about not being connected to the door switches on your 2dr . Thus, just a reading light. On the 4dr models according to the wiring diagram, the reading light is also connected to the rear door switches thus becoming a read/courtesy light. This circuit also includes the rear cigar lighter.
