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.

I felt good about getting in two non-fiction books this month, but as predicted, it generally brings down my page count because they take longer (more attention and concentration necessary) and simply because they are (generally speaking) less pages than most fiction books.

I read several books toward my zombie fiction goal and just finished one (in my march batch) that counts towards my classics goal!

Good total, but about 1000 pages less than January. Still plenty of year to go! 4 months ago

I made a math error somewhere at the beginning of the year and have spent a couple of days trying to figure out what the hell happened. I’ve given up on “correcting” the problem in the monthly entries and have opted to just adjust the end of year numbers to reflect correct totals and move on. I’ve triple checked it and have someone else verify it (since I readily admit to having questionable math skills).

I’m pretty happy with my page totals for the year and for the entire 25 months as a whole. It’s actually quit better than I hoped, but I had record page totals in February and March this year (higher than almost any other total ever in the 15 or so years I’ve been keeping track).

I didn’t want to count any other reading I’d one in the past that I have lists for when I created this goal, though that would significantly reduce the amount of time it would take…but I really wanted to see how long it would take me to do this as a fresh goal (and in tandem with my read 1000 books goal). I’m wondering how closely they might link up (or if they do at all).

If I did the math right that’s 32.35 years (my kids had to help me make sure I did it right). That is indeed a long time…maybe I’ll rethink my no counting my previous lists…I’ll have to think on it. :-)

On to 2014 and what ever pages that brings! 6 months ago


~Lady-of-Shalott~Countess Purrs Like a KittenIve been so naughty...

Not updating my goal here, but I have been keeping my excel spreadsheet updated, this year I ended up reading 14,319

This takes my total for this goal up to: 169,486 this will take me forever! 6 months ago


TG2013 Update

One of the very few good things about breaking my leg in April was that I got a lot of reading done! I was off work for 6 weeks, then worked half time for another three weeks. It took a couple weeks for me to be able to stay awake long enough to read much (that Oxycontin was really knocking me out!) but after that I spent most of the next month in bed and read a lot.

Number of books read: 62

Number of pages read: 20,287

That’s by far the most since I started this goal 7 years ago, and it brings me well over the halfway point- I’m probably near 510,000 pages now for my total :)6 months ago


DawnWow - I love this site

What a cool goal.

Wonder what the rules are. Wonder how many pages I have already read. Wonder how long it might take – the rest of my life I’m guessing.

I read daily but I still reckon this could take a while. Hmm, just ran the numbers, might have to rethink this, 10 pages per day would take 274 YEARS!

55 pages per day, for 50 years would equal the MILLION – I’m not sure I have 55 years left (currently 39); think I might have to break this one down into smaller chunks!

Ok, so 55 pages per day for a year is 20,075 pages. I was thinking to round to 25,000 BUT 55 pages per day is a lot. Yeh ok so some days more, especially on holidays, but some days less – don’t want it to be a chore, but I do like a challenge! 25,000 in a year would be 69 pages per day. Going to trial it! 6 months ago

TG2012 update

Not only did I not find the info to get my spreadsheet up to date last year, but I was also pretty lax in keeping track of my 2012 list. After gathering together the books I had piled on my nightstand and the bits of paper scattered around with books written on them, I think I have my totals for 2012:

Number of books read: 42

(So close to 43!)

Number of pages read: 12,496

That’s a little more than the last couple of years but not quite as much as 2009.

I would say that there are two major reasons I read a bit more last year. One is that I took an atypically laid-back vacation last summer and I did a lot of reading on that trip. The other is that I was single all year :P

My total now is around 485-490 thousand pages. I may hit the halfway point this year!!

BTW- with fifteen people working on this goal and two who have marked it as completed, this is probably the most popular goal I’ve ever created on 43T :)18 months ago

I’m mathmatically challenged today…but I think at the rate I’m reading it would take me just under 20 years to read 1000000 pages…at my current averge page rate. That’s not too shabby, I think…but I can’t count on reading that much all the time, depending on other interests, family and social obligations and work. This years reading rate was bolstered by public transportation (long bus rides) and being out of work since September this year (hope to remedy that soon) and being single (no hope of remedying that any time soon). :-) 19 months ago


~Lady-of-Shalott~Countess Purrs Like a KittenTotl amount of pages read for 2012

Some months were great and others due to issues or travelling were lean months, so I read less than last year but its still a good number… drum roll please…..

Total for 2012 was….....23,619 pages!!

I had hoped to read more…but, I’m pretty happy with my goals and where I am at with them presently. Some of the series I want to read are online only at my library…I am very disappointed to see libraries going digital, though I suppose it does increase the amount of books they can offer. I don’t particularly enjoy reading on my computer and if this continues to be the trend, I will have to look at getting an ereader, like a kindle. Blech. 20 months ago
