    Tumblr! Please...

    Hey Barnes & Noble, sooooo I was just wondering....

    It seems as if you have a serious lack of a "Tumblr" App, and I know that I'm not the only one who happens to notice. Tumblr itself says that their app is "a zillion times faster" and now that they've changed their setup, it's probably true.

    'Cause if i trust one thing in this world, it's Tumblr.

    Once again, Sue Jenkins delivers a how-to book that's engaging,

    Once again, Sue Jenkins delivers a how-to book that's engaging, full of personality, and easy to use. As a small-business owner who is short on time, I found that Tumblr for Dummies can quickly get you up and running with your Tumblr account. It's also perfect for those who want a personal micro-blogging platform to post their own text, images, videos, links, quotes, and audio files and to follow and share others' posts.

    At 154 pages, the book fits easily into your purse or briefcase to read while waiting in line or while at your desk. It covers everything from setting up an account, learning how follow other users, and reblogging content to customizing a theme to match the brand of your business. It also provides recommendations on the most useful third-party apps and even includes sections for those who are familiar with CSS and HTML who want to do more advanced customization. &nbsp;&nbsp;

    Tumblr for Dummies is an essential reference for anyone who wants to establish a presence in this platform and to maximize Tumblr's full features.

    Terrible!

    This sample of " Tumblr for Dummies " gave me no help. The sample just showed the chapters,its contents, and the dedication. None of this book helped me. It disapointed me a lot. I thought I was really going to get help with tumblr even in just a few pages! I would not reccomend this sample of " Tumblr for Dummies " .
