What are your tricks specific to getting through tough literature?

I figured out recently that all the egg heads I hang out with have enviable vocabularies because they take notes in their books of the words they don't already know. As in, they highlight the word and write down its definition IN THE BOOK. This blew my mind.
Are there other tricks for getting through tough reads? I may or may not be stalling out with Gravity's Rainbow, currently.
Anything that keeps you interested, learning, and motivated to keep going when the prose gets long, convoluted, and insane would be very much appreciated.
