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.

Update 16/10/12

So far I have fully completed 6 books, and I’m over halfway through two others.

1. Wuthering Heights
2. Jane Eyre
3. Lemony Snicket’s Bad Beginning
4. The Hunger Games(The Hunger Games Trilogy)
5. Catching Fire(The Hunger Games Trilogy)
6. Mockingjay(The Hunger Games Trilogy)
4. Little Women (Nearly Finished)
5. Anthony Kiedis’ Scar Tissue (Over halfway)

By the end of the year I would like to have finished the last two and possibly The Picture of Dorian Gray.

So Far...

1. Wuthering Heights
2. Jane Eyre
3. Lemony Snicket’s The Bad Beginning
4. Halfway through Anthony Kiedis’ Scar Tissue (again)
5. Started the picture of Dorian Gray

Finished Wuthering Heights...

Now moving on to Jane Eyre. I’m not actually this slow of a reader, just unfortunately life kind of gets in the way. I aim to have finished this by the 7/6, that gives me one month. Here’s to hoping!

Halfway through...

Wuthering Heights. Love this book.

New Kindle!!

My mummy bought me a Kindle for Christmas and all the classics are free on it! I’ve decided I really want to read more in the New Year, and now I don’t need to worry about making a boyfriend feel happy I can spend as much time doing stuff for me as I like! So I’m going to attempt to read one chapter per day :D
