The site presents information on local businesses and any special deals or promotions they may be offering. Users can also post reviews and send or receive recommendations from other users.
The Judy’s Book website has a rather laid back design that uses a white and blue color scheme. A solid blue header at the top of the page includes a banner advertisement. This is not terribly intrusive and contains a service that is somewhat relevant. Below the header, users can check out links to the most popular Judy’s Book search locations, which include cities like Atlanta, Seattle, San Francisco, New Orleans, New York City, Dallas and Los Angeles.
