It was so interesting to catch little glimpses into other people's lives: writers, journalists, famous people, not famous people, a judge, a social worker, Bill Gates, Beck, a cop, a UPS driver, etc. These were diary email entries published as they were sent in, so they are supposed to feel real and unedited. Interesting...
Lots of people, keeping short-time diaries for publications. From Bill Gates to editors to lawyers. I skipped a few, some were good, some were pretty dull.
