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.

The Alphabet versus the Goddess:

The Conflict Between Word and Image
by Leonard Shlain

Firefly Lane

by Kristen Hannah

One of my recent finds at a thrift store.
So far I’m thoroughly enjoying it.

The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest

by Stieg Larsson

The last book in the trilogy.
I enjoyed book 1 more then book 2.
Will see how book 3 goes.

The Girl Who Played with Fire

by Stieg Larsson

(Working on this one)

Mergers and Acquisitions

by Dana Vachon

I enjoyed this books for entertainment purposes only. Don’t think it was “a tell-all” where Wall Street banking is concerned.

The Memory Keeper's Daughter

by Kim Edwards

This is the last book I recently finished. It was an interesting novel but the overall tone was melancholic. Maybe the subject matter hit home with recent events in my family but I’ve decided to go for books that are a little more cheery. At least for a while.

I’m currently working on “The Magic of Thinking Big” by Schwartz. It’s a self-help book and should be a quick read.

Shades of Brown

by Denise Becker

Nobody's Fool

by Richard Russo

The River King

by Alice Hoffman
