is given for literally ANY books in the store. You usually need to trade
very good non-fiction or classics for this credit. Some non-fiction will
only be tradable for non-fiction, at the store's discretion. You also
can receive this credit by trading music or video for books. (See The
Trading Chain for more info.)

category is given for any fiction books. This includes ALL categories
of fiction in the store. You usually receive this credit by trading westerns,
mysteries or science fiction.

categories of fiction books (except classics) are included, however. Romance,
suspense, horror, bestsellers and common types of non-fiction usually

at Jellybean's offers the unique opportunity to trade one category of
goods for another. We do, however, have to place restrictions on what
items will trade for what. Supply and demand dictates that some items
are more available than others, and those items usually will not trade
for things in scarcer supply. Please use this trade chain to determine
what your items will trade for in the store. How it works:
items at the top of the list have the most value and will give you the
most credit for the things below.
lower list items for ones higher, however, you will get much less value
than normal, and in the case of books, will not be able to trade higher
on the list at all.
have any questions, call your nearest Jellybean's for more details on
how to trade your items in the store.
