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.

vannyaBook two for august

I read the next and last book I own Bullet in the anita blake series. It took me maybe three days to read it just the few chances I got between homework and life. Of course I loved the book but she definitely went back to the sex in this one again really i could care less its the story that is awesome! But I was disappointed on how Laurell wraped up the book. It seemed rushed like she wanted to just finish and not really elaborate on the issues she quickly noted at the very end, all every abrupt. I feel one of the issues so could have been a whole nother book if she wanted to go there and still continue with the other issues that where going on. I can only assume she had another idea that she wanted to hurry and get to and figured that the rest really were not as important as the next step. Still I feel like theres things missing now. Still a good book dont get me wrong especially if you love the series just not the best ending. 3 years ago

vannyabook one for august

last night i had trouble getting my toddler to go to sleep so i layed down with him and started flirt by laurell k hamilton i just got it in the mail the other day and i figured hey if i get to lay here might as well do something since i didnt want to fall asleep yet… well it kind of back fired lol i definitely didnt fall asleep but i ended up reading the whole book and stayed up way too late as with all of her books i loved it obviously lol this one had really nice flow and before i knew it it was done ;p 3 years ago

vannyabook 3 for july

I just finished “The Kite Runner” and wow this definitely will be a recommended title for me. It’s an easy reader and pretty short or maybe I just flew through it. The story gives a new light on Afghanistan and the horror even the well off faced, tragic and beautiful at the same time. It isn’t a gory book at all in fact it doesn’t directly describe anything in detail. Yet it does so you see exactly what the author means without turning into a action horror novel. 3 years ago

vannyabook two for july

I finished the girl who played with fire last night mainly pushed through faster then i was intending because i have school work i need to be doing and i kept wanting to stop and go read my “other” book lol now i want to read the next one! but i havent gotten around to buying it so that helps some… but i have a few other books i could read on my shelf… but really the goal for the rest of the month for books is to stick to my text books since i already have two under my belt.. we will see lol … well i could just try and find out all the homework info for my classes and just hurry and read the books i need to for them and take a ton of notes and just refreash when it comes time to that sections info lol least i will have read the whole book and this term im taking classes that give me interesting books :) theeen i can move onto my storie books again …......... but yea for the book in question i loved it it puts a nice spin on stuff and gives a ton more into the salander character 3 years ago

vannyabook one for july

book one for the month was the girl with the dragon tattoo. i liked it definitly different then my normal theme choice of books. it was seriously twisted but so far the series is addicting im about half way throu the next book 3 years ago

vannyafor the month of june

ok so for the month of june so far ive read 4 books… i think ive made my mark lol the next series im on might take me a little bit to read but i doubt ill miss my mark 3 years ago

vannyabook four

the fourth book was the fourth in the mortal instruments series city of fallen angels. again im loving these books but i am not happy with how this book ended not that i dont like the story it just sucks that it abruptly ends when it feels like there should be another paragraph or something and its looking like i will have to wait a whole year before i get the next one :( and a year after that for the one after… not too happy bout that probably the reason why i read book series that have already ended because i tend to fly through them and then im left waiting longer then my patience lasts.. still awesome series way easy reader 3 years ago

vannyabook three

vannyabook two

My second book for the month and yes ive waaaay met my goal for the month; anyway my second book was the second to the imortal instruments series city of ashes. I flew through this book I think faster then I did the first but it was a good book the series flows nicely to the next books. I recommend this series 3 years ago

vannyabook one

My first book for my list was City of Bones, I picked it up and devoured it in about two days and started on the next in the series yesterday. I’m just about done with it. It of course is a teen book but i liked it a lot. The whole world in the books are fascinating the only thing I would change is to make it more adult then teen lol. It’s just funny that the author goes around to describe the cuss words she wants to use but avoids vulgar language, sort of. Just a little immature but like I said it is a teenager book and really more young adult books should probably be written like that. If you like fantasy vampires, werewolf’s, angels, and demons then its a nice casual read for between daily to-dos. 3 years ago
