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.

Well these books are not going to read themselves!
I’m trying to keep up with a new routine: read for 30-60 minutes a day, every day… If this works then I’ll be working well on my list.. :) 17 months ago


...96 20 months ago


97 on my ‘To Read’ List on Goodreads now!! I feel like I’ve been stuck on Anna Karenina for a lifetime. :) 23 months ago


My husband gave me NookColor for my birthday. I have probably read 12 books since I received it in Mid-August. I’ve lost count at this point. I think I need to review my pile list so that I can add some more of these and get this goal finished! 3 years ago

I’ve been participating in a local book club. So it’s not necessarily from my “must read” pile, but I’ve been reading a whole lot more! 3 years ago

Cyber SailorBreaking down the original list

The list is big, and it’s growing.. So I’m taking it easy..
I separated few books that I already own (not those I’m going to buy yet), and those I’m planning on reading with my book clubs groups,, Here it is, the smaller list with chosen items :

Much smaller and easier to manage.. I’ll be reading one book each month, and large books will be taking a bit longer.. But I hope by the end of 2011, the list small will be over..

Starting of today, I’m reading the first on the list: Orientalism.. 3 years ago

lucindanicolei'm not good at this!

if a book doesnt just bring me completely into it, i become a “juggler”. my main focus was girl with the dragon tattoo (after 4 attempts, might i add), but it just is not moving quickly enough! because of that, after getting a gift card for christmas to buy more books, i just added 2 more books to pile. :/ so now i’m reading the new one i bought as well…

being at home is difficult too, because i have a large bookshelf in my room full of books i have read, not read, and not quite finished. so now i’m like “ooooh i want to read/reread that one too!”, and i’m just all over the place!

i also have a horrible habit of starting books that are a part of a series…



I move or got rid of this pile. 3 years ago


I’m never going to be able to complete this task. I hve so many I want to read yet I keep finding out about others so right now I have a pile of 15 books I’ve taken from my uni library to be read.

I’ll forever have a list or pile of books I want to read. Studying eng lit doesn’t really help though. 4 years ago


106 now… I thought I’d have read A LOT more than that! 4 years ago
