There are 17 Audio Diaries to be found in total. If you see '!!! - ****' between Diary locations, it identifies a point-of-no-return and you should make sure you have all diaries before continuing on. However, you don't have to worry about grabbing them all in one run; if you miss one, reload the chapter it's located in from the 'Play Add-On Content' menu. As soon as you grab the last one you need to complete the set, the achievement will pop.

I'm listing these in the order I found them, but if you're exploring, you won't have too much trouble. I've written this guide to be as spoiler free as possible, and restructured it to fit with MAKA91's video guide.

#1: 'Doing Well By Doing Good' - Market Square, Room 907
Before you enter the room with the Little Sister parade, where the two people are talking about what's under the Big Daddy suits, there's a room to the right with 3 guys in it, one fixing an elevator. The Diary is behind the counter.

#2: 'Observation #33' - High Street, Maison Vosges
On the very top floor of High Street, you'll find a clothes shop called Maison Vosges. You'll find the Diary in the right-hand dressing room at the back of the shop.

#3: 'The Goddamn People' - High Street, The Watched Clock
Before you enter Cohen's to meet Elizabeth's contact, go for a wander in the opposite direction. There's an open door next to The Golden Rule Jewellers leading to a lobby with two doors, one locked and labelled 'Maintenance'. Through the other door, you'll find The Watched Clock Diner. Go into the kitchens and you'll find the Diary on one of the benches.

#4: 'Offer of Employment' - High Street, Maintenance
After picking up AD#3, you'll be told you've found a code (2076). This will unlock Maintenance. Inside on the desk is the Diary.

!!! - Enter Cohen's

#5: 'Left Behind' - Menswear
Once you've lockpicked your way into a room full of Splicers and have to head upstairs to the Ice Rink, you'll want to head up the left-hand staircase. Once on the first landing, turn left and you'll see a large red duct. Crouch through it, nail the Splicer before he sees you and grab the Diary. Also make sure to grab the Lockpick to the right. There's another lockpick in the Dressing Rooms to the left as you exit the duct, behind a Turret.

#6: 'The Old Bear' - Menswear, The Daily Bread
Once you've got the lockpicks and AD#5, head back downstairs and have Elizabeth open The Daily Bread (one lockpick is needed). Turn the first corner and look behind the bar counter. The Diary is on the top shelf on the far right. Make sure to turn around and nab the Infusion on the shelf, as well as another Turret and a piece of Gear downstairs.

#7: 'Critics' - Menswear, Haberdashery
Having dealt with all the Splicers upstairs, you'll notice a Haberdashery. Inside, in one of the dressing rooms at the back, you'll find a Turret guarding this Diary.

#8: 'Message In A Bottle' - Ladieswear, Jewellers
After arriving on Floor 2, head directly across the balcony, ignoring the SkyLine, into Ladieswear. You'll see a Jewellers on the right. At the back of the store, there is a locked door that requires 3 lockpicks. The Diary is inside this room on the desk. Make sure to grab the lockpick on the shelf behind you to your left (while looking at the Diary) and the Infusion directly in front of you as you leave the room.

#9: 'Insufficient Postage' - Ladieswear, Shoes
After picking up AD#8, dealing with the Splicers and picking the hairpin lock to get out of the Jewellers, head up the stairs to the right and into Shoes. At the back left of the shop, there's a locked door. Open it with the code from AD#8 (0928) and head inside. The Diary is in the back room, guarded by a Turret and a Splicer.

#10: 'False Advertising' - The Pavilion Floor 3, Plasmids
Once you SkyLine your way to Floor 3, head to the left-hand side of the balcony and have Elizabeth lockpick into Plasmids. In the room adjacent to the room with Shock Jockey in it (a plasmid you will need to access AD#11), there is a large safe just sitting on the floor. It requires 3 lockpicks to open and contains this Diary and an Infusion.

#11: 'A Gift From Fontaine' - Rapture On Ice, Jack Frost Village
You'll eventually come to a large door on Floor 3 labelled 'Jack Frost Village'. Inside, you'll see 'Jack Frost Souvenirs'. Head around the back of the souvenir shop, use Shock Jockey to get the door open and retrieve this Diary, which is sitting on the floor right in front of you.

#12: 'Ghost In The Machine' - The Pavilion Floor 1, Pret-a-Porter
Once you've got Old Man Winter, head back down to the bottom floor. As you come out of the stairs (or the elevator if you Shock Jockey'd the busted one on The Pavilion Floor 2; doing so gives you a piece of Gear and some cash when you get out of the elevator), head straight across to the other side to a shop called Pret-a-Porter. Freeze the spraying water with Old Man Winter to create a bridge, deal with the Splicers and Turret, then head to the back of the shop. The first accessible dressing room has both the Diary and a Shotgun in it. The Diary is behind the couch and easily missed. Don't forget the Infusion in the other dressing room!

!!! - Bathysphere to Homewares

#13: 'Oven Of The Future' - Homewares, Electronics
As soon as you enter Electronics, head down the stairs to the elevator shaft in the middle of the room. The Diary is inside.

#14: 'The Kiss' - Homewares, Bistro
Head up the stairs to the left and into the Bistro. Downstairs, you'll see a locked door, which AD#13 gives you the code for, allowing you to grab a new weapon to the Bioshock franchise! On the counter in front of said door is the Diary.

#15: 'Observation #17' - Homewares, Customer Service
As you enter Customer Service, you'll see a reception desk. Behind the desk is a room. On the desk in this room is the Diary. Very easy.

#16: 'A Little Help' - Homewares, Bridal
After picking up AD#15, head out the door and to the left. You'll see two huge signs, one saying 'Toys' and the other 'Bridal'. Head over to the Bridal door and have Elizabeth pick it for one lockpick. The Diary is behind the counter in the room with the Splicer.

#17: 'Observation #22' - Appliances, Staff Only
After the big fight in Appliances and you've passed through the door Elizabeth had to unlock from the other side while you got your butt shot off, make a left. Use Old Man Winter to freeze the water, cross over and head left into the office at the back. The final Diary is on the desk.

Enjoy your 50G!
