It manifests in different ways - what you said about large-type

and the layout of words on a page, may also be an aspect I hadn't considered.

What I mean is, when I remember something I learned from a book, I can usually remember where the fact was on a page, and how far through the book it was, and where I was and what was going on around me when I read it. Possibly the fact that, for instance, something read near the beginning of a book where my left hand would be holding/folding the pages back from the rest of the book, produces a sensation that is remembered by the muscles in my hands and associated with the words.

Maybe if more people had this natural(?) relationship to books they would read more. A book is so much more than just words on pages for me.

P.S. I have a copy of The Bead Game I bought to sell on Amazon but now I'm going to check it out. Thanks.
