reading paper vs using an eReader

I was sitting and reading thru a magazine at the library today, and was thinking about how that experience was different than sitting and reading materials on a computer or an eReader....

For me - I think it is skimming -
full page, with 3 columns... looking for trigger words.

This is probably different than reading a book where the process is more linear and you must read thru the text completely without skipping around.

So... it was just an observation of reading style, and how a real paper document for me might be better at times vs trying to read it on an eReader.

Wonder what others have found -
what works on paper & what works on an eReader ?
