Fantastic Firsts ... Collector's Book Clubs



Mysterious Galaxy's Fantastic Firsts program is our book club that brings you new and exciting reads each month at a 20% discount. It's easy! pick your favorite genre: Science Fiction/Fantasy (hardcover or paperback), Young Adult, Mystery, or Cozy and receive an awesome read each month! We can ship it to your door or you can pick it up in store. 


Our strong relationships in the industry and the community bring authors into our store and provide advance access to the best forthcoming titles across all genres. Many of our Fantastic Firsts have gone on to win major awards, been selected as #1 Indie Next Picks, and appeared on annual “Best of” lists from The New York Times to Publishers Weekly. We are pleased to offer author appearances and signed copies whenever possible!


How It Works:

  1. To be added to the book club simply let one of us booksellers know you'd like to be added. That’s it! You’ll start receiving a Fantastic First Newsletter once a month as well as a reminder call or e-mail to come into the store and pick up your book or have it shipped to you. Give us a call at 858-268-4747, e-mail us at mgbooks [@], or come on into the store and talk to an employee. =)

Payment Options:   

                      1) Month by Month: You can pay for the book each month when you pick it up in the   

                                                store or you can pay over the phone via credit card if your book

                                                is being shipped to you.   

                     2) Pre - Payment: We can keep your credit card on file and automatically bill you for         

                                              the book and shipping each month. With this option you won’t get                       

                                              a reminder call each month, your book will simply be shipped right  

                                              to your door. *This option is only available to members having their  

                                              books shipped to them.  

                    3) Month Bundle: This is a great gift option for someone and includes the cost of    

                                                shipping! For the set prices listed below the member will get a

                                                book each month for three months (3 books total).

  1. Q: Can I skip a month if I don’t want to purchase the book?

A: As a member of the Fantastic Firsts book club you are agreeing to buy the   

selected book each month but if for some reason you don’t want to receive a

book one month you can skip. We encourage you to read a book even if it seems

like something you wouldn’t typically pick out for yourself and if you see a book

from one of the other genres that calls your name you can get that one instead!


We hope you’ll join us in our efforts to share the local indie bookstore experience you know and love with friends and family outside of the community!
