How do you read?

I'm hesitant to say more, because I'd love to see what comes up.
Basically, though, I'd like to be a more effective reader. And not just for research, but in general, fiction and non-fiction.
Do you use marginalia? If so, what's your marginalia system?
Do you take notes while reading? During? After?
Bonus question: Do you have a larger system to your reading. Like, "This month I'm only going to read about the Renaissance." Or, "I try to alternate fiction and non-fiction." How's that working for you?
All ideas welcome!
