Tom Riddle's diary is a journal Lord Voldemort, then known as Tom Marvolo Riddle, used while studying at Hogwarts. The diary is a Horcrux. It interacts with those who write in it and can possess them, using them to open the Chamber of Secrets. The diary was destroyed by Harry Potter in his second year at Hogwarts.
In the book: Tom's diary is small and thin. The year it was bought is printed on the shabby black cover. On the first page it is signed with "T. M. Riddle". All the other pages are empty. The back cover bears the name of a Muggle newsagent's in Vauxhall Road, London.
If somebody writes in the diary, the ink is sucked into the paper and Tom Riddle's answer appears. The diary is able to interact with the writer and can even show the person stored memories (similar to a Pensieve). The imprint left on it by teenager Tom Riddle, however, is much stronger than that left on a painting by a regular wizard, or on the Marauder's Map by the four troublemakers. The diary feeds on the soul of its confider. The more secrets and thoughts a writer poures into it, the stronger Riddle's soul fragment inside the diary becomes until it will finally overpower and possess the writer's soul. Tom Riddle can even become strong enough to leave the diary altogether and manifest. If this state endures, the confider will die of exhaustion.
