Dear 43 Things Users,

10 years after introducing 43 Things to the world, we have decided we have met our last goal: completing the incredible experience that has been 43 Things. Please join us in giving one last cheer to all the folks who have shared their goals with the world, as well as all the people who have worked at The Robot Co-op to build this incredible website. We won a Webby Award, published a book, and brought happiness to a lot of people.

Starting today, 43 Things users can export their goals and entries from the site. Starting August 15, we will make the site “read only”. 43 Things users will still be able to view the site and export their content, but we won’t be taking any new content from users. We hope to leave the site up for folks to see and download their content until the end of the year. Ending on New Year’s Eve takes us full circle.

It has been a long ride (one of our original goals was to "build a company that lasts at least 2 years” - we beat that one!) While we wish the site could live on, it has suffered from a number of challenges - changes in how people use the site, the advertising industry, and how search engines view the site. We wish the outcome was different – but we’ve always been realistic about when our goals are met and when they aren't.

As of today, you will be able to download your goals and entries. See more about that on the FAQ page. Thanks for 10 great years of goal-setting and achieving.

- The Robots.

Read all the books on the BBC Big Read Top 100 (read all 3 entries…)
Heres what I've done so far

1. The Lord of the Rings, JRR Tolkien
Have read this twice, just to make sure I really didn’t enjoy it the first time, and no I didn’t. Watch the movies the books are too slow for todays fantasy novels

10. Jane Eyre, Charlotte Brontë
Read this at school soooo long ago

75. Bridget Jones’s Diary, Helen Fielding
This one on Holiday, pretty funny. And actually better than the movie.

81. The Twits, Roald Dahl
Thanks to school I won’t have to read this again.

89. Magician, Raymond E Feist
Read this 4 times. It really is THAT good. You must read it.

Damn is that all I’ve read, I really have a long way to go.


Bradley Anderson Do or do not. There is no try.

The Twits?

I’m a big Roald Dahl fan myself, but I’ve never heard of ‘The Twits’. Is it a children’s book, as well?
