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.

How to join a book club


sierrak Happy to get back to work on my Goals!

Thank you for sharing this!

This is great that you found a Book Club in this way! i agree that Craigslist would also be a great place to explore when looking for a book club.

I hope you are still enjoying your group!

I have only been

able to attend one meeting. It was so much fun. There were all kinds of people, with different views. Even the months i am not able to attend, I still read the selected book. I don’t personally tend to read much fiction, so it is fun to read what others suggest. Then it is even more fun to go to a bookstore or coffee house to discuss the book.

Right now I am reading The Unbearable Lightness of Being, and I am enjoying it very much. The next book club meeting is scheduled for a Sunday on which I am scheduled to work. I am looking around for someone to switch days with me.

Even though I

was not able to attend the book club meeting, I did read the book. It was very interesting. I particularly enjoyed reading something that would not even enter my awareness if it weren’t for the book club. There does seem to be a tendency fro the selection to have a corresponding movie. With Kandera, I wonder how the interesting 3rd party rambles are integrated into the movie. I know at one time, the book Laughable Loves was considered for the monthly selection.

MamaKitty has gotten 40 cheers on this entry.
