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.

Still Reading

I am still picking up books and reading them as quickly as I can. But I still have a lot of books to go.

I don't even remember

I don’t remember when I bought this book but it must have been when I went to the used book store.
It was an ok book. More a overview on why we use certain words in their context.

Garfield weighs in

Who doesn’t have a Garfield book or two laying around the house. Rainy days are great for reading comic books.
And I can check this one off my list too.

Murder She Wrote

Yes I actually have a bunch of Murder She Wrote books that I bought a long time ago and never read. It is funny when you watch the show you don’t pick up on certain things. But when you are reading it you have time to think about what is going on.

I Am America (and so can you)

I just finished reading it. Very entertaining. If you watch the show you will invision Stephen Colbert saying all this stuff.

Monster by Frank Peretti

2 Books down and soooooo many more to go.

If you ever want to read a good thriller I would suggest this book. There was a couple of twist in the book but manly it was supenseful enough to make the book worth reading.

An Invitation to Tea

I finally read and finished this book.
Couldn’t sleep so I picked up the first book off the shelf that I started and then put down many years ago.


I want to:
