The Year of the Diary

Has anyone else noticed that a healthy chunk of the Evergreen books are diaries, memoirs, or diary-format fiction? The far-flung reaches of wilderness Canada, the beautiful island of Corfu, a fascinating trek through the frozen hinterland, and a heart-warming life of two girls joined at the head all make for interesting reading.

Does the diary/memoir format make a book more appealing to you? Is it like peering inside someone's kitchen window, or is it as ho-hum as reality television?
