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.

Not sure what I’m starting next, need to make more time to read. Probably will start From a Buick 8.

I also need to update my list, he has at least one new one out (Mr. Mercedes).

Joyland, going to read Cell next


Doctor Sleep … 9 more to go for this year. I better make more time to read if I plan to get to 10.

Starting Joyland next – that shouldn’t take long at all.

10 by 12.31.14

I picked 10 to read before 12/31/14, but I probably won’t read them in the order they are numbered. This is what I have left. The full list is under the entry “So far…”

The blue title is the one I’m currently reading.

The Dark Half, going to start Doctor Sleep next :-)

I received

my 2 new books Doctor Sleep and Joyland the other day…but I’ve only read less than 100 pages (I think) of The Dark Half. I really want to read the 2 new ones but will wait until I finish this one.


haven’t even started Skeleton Crew yet and changed my mind. Going to read The Dark Half.


The Regulators, starting Skeleton Crew next. Hopefully won’t take 4 months to finish or I won’t come close to reading 10 books by December 31st…

Started the

Regulators yesterday. 2 new novels coming out this year :)

Joyland coming out in June and Doctor Sleep (“follows the story of Danny, the child in King’s novel THE SHINING, as an adult.”)is coming out in September.
