Which one is grammatically correct?


(1) I cannot read on a computer screen as quickly as in print.

(2) I cannot read as quickly on a computer screen as in print.

Thanks.

I think both are grammatically correct, though (2) is slightly preferred because "as quickly as" is more directly associated with "read" as a result of its closer placement in the sentence.

In both cases I would like to add the words "as quickly as I can in print" for clarity.
