I have to agree with Grimheart, here. I’m a fairly visual thinker. I suspect that when I read a physical set of rules, my mind retains not only (some) of the verbiage, but also an impression of the page layout and where that page is in the rules. If there are graphics that, too, gives me a unique impression of what and where I’m reading. Think of it as meta data. Consequently, when flipping through printed matter I can very quickly match that visual impression and page location and then bore in looking for the relevant verbiage. It’s a lot more difficult to do that on an electronic device. Most electronic devices (and of course they vary to an extent) cut down on that meta data–both during the initial reading and the later searching. So it’s a slower process to find what you’re looking for.
