Pinterest for Dummies, a new book by Kelby Carr, covers everything I've learned about Pinterest so far - and it fills in the blanks with things I did not know. The book is easy to follow, with step-by-step instructions and lots of informative screenshots to illustrate each point. It covers topics such as Getting Started on Pinterest, Creating Boards, Pinning and Repinning, Socializing on Pinterest, and more. I found the chapters on Pinterest etiquette and privacy especially useful. Those who run a website and/or have a blog may find the chapter on self-promoting particularly helpful. I love the handy tips and "Remember" tidbits throughout the book.
Pinterest for Dummies is a great resource for those who are just discovering the joys of pinning. Even if you are proficient in all things Pinterest, you might find some useful information that makes using it even more fun.
