New York Public Library Desk Reference

I'm a fan of reference literature, don't read them from cover to cover, but whenever I'm bored I will look up an article at random and learn something new. One of those books is New York Public Library Desk Reference.

So I thought I should get a few of those reference books to have on my Kindle, but to my surprise I discovered that very little is available in that genre. With the built-in search capabilities of an E-reader, I thought that reference works and E-readers would have been a marriage in the anteroom of Heaven. For some reason it is not. Any ideas why that is?

The Desk Reference was published in 2002. Did they update it since then?

Maybe there are other choices.

I must admit I've never heard of this, and Amazon don't seem to sell it, even as a paper book. What is it?

The book is a compilation of questions and answers that the librarians at New York City's Public Library have received over the years. Quaint and interesting.
