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.

#16 Beloved by Toni Morrison

Hard to read at times, partly because of the subject matter and partly the shifting from present (1870s) to the different character’s pasts. Bit confusing generally but really good book. Wonderful poetic use of language.

#15 Prince Caspian by C.S Lewis

Read this a few months ago but forget to write about it. It was ok. Watched the film last week which was brilliant though slightly a lot altered from the book. I can’t really remember much about the book tbh. The dwarves and badger and reepicheep rock :D

#14 Hound of the baskervilles by Arthur Conan Coyle

I bought this for a module I ended up quitting at uni but glad I read it as was surprisingly good! Rather eerie. I had seen part of a tv adaptation but the book was really good and I think I would like to read more Sherlock Holmes stories.
