    Tackling Tumbler does a good job of explaining every step of starting your own Tumblr account. It also spends a chapter explaining all the different theme's available, which is exactly what I was hoping for! But for someone like me who is familiar with setting up a Tumblr account, the beginning chapters weren't things that were new information.

    What I really liked about this book was that the last few chapters were dedicated to explaining step by step how to build your own theme. Tackling Tumblr does a good job of explaining CSS, even for CSS beginners like me!

    If you're looking for a good resource book about starting your own Tumblr, I would definitely give this one a try.
