Fleury's book is a compilation of a number of postings on her blog. Whoever edited it did an outstanding job of selecting those postings that would appeal to a wide range of readers.

Wit as well as wisdom greet the reader throughout. Those who enjoy stories about families will find much here that will entertain them and that will, most probably, bring to mind the foibles of their own families.

"Just Nonsense" explores many of the nooks and crannies of contemporary life and a woman's experience of it. Readers who enjoy animal stories will not be disappointed. Nor those who are raising young children or working with others in an office.

Fleury has a fine sense of the ridiculous and an ability to delight in human folly and poke fun at it. But her book also explores human tragedy--her own fight with diabetes--and the slugging we all do at times through the hard periods of our lives.

I recommend Fleury's book to all who'd like to lie back on a lounge chair, sip an iced tea, enjoy the summer breeze, and simply let themselves enter a world where all is grist for the laughter mill.

I loved every moment of this book. I read a part of it in a waiting room and people kept looking at me quizzically every time I laughed aloud. This one is sure to keep you turning pages and busting with laughter!

I sort of know Melinda, as she has responded to a few of my tweets. She's hilarious, this book is hilarious, and if you don't buy it, you're dumb. Sorry. It's true.

Well this really isn't my genre of book. I usually like to read sci fi or fantasy. This book was recommended to me and I thought it looked interesting so I bought it. Right from the start it captivated me and made me want to read more of it. Story after story I just kept reading waiting to see what would happen next. Having kids myself I can relate to these sometimes seemingly unreal situations that actually do happen. I couldn't put it down until I read the whole thing. I think that it was really well written and have recommended it to all my friends. Can't wait till the next one comes out and this really opened my eyes to a new genre of books

I read this in one evening. It is funny in places and serious in places. It takes a humerous look at the the things of life that sometimes are not so funny. Melynda is a great writer and hopefully there will be a book containing more of the antics of Mr. P. I think his wit is topped only by Melynda's.

Melynda's book is hilarious. I usually don't read these types of books, but this one got my attention from page 1. She's able to look at the funny side of life, no matter what the circumstances are. I definitely recommend this book to anyone who needs a good laugh while raising a family.

This book is wonderfully written, witty, and a whole lot of fun! It's guaranteed to make you laugh and think all at the same time. Melynda is an amazing author full of crazy life events to write down and put on paper. I can't wait to see what else she comes up with!!!!
