comment Concentrating on reading in a noisy environment
I meant with "motivational annotation" the number indicating how many pages remain to the end of the chapter.

Yes, This is what I'm talking about. I only use motivating annotations and instead of highlighting I create notes outside.

I will leave the question open for a while yet.

comment Concentrating on reading in a noisy environment
The starting and ending point is really useful tip. Some of the material is in pdf and if the chapter I need to read has 35 pages, I'm writing on the first page number 35, second - 34, last - 1 (pages remaining to end of the chapter), which is quite motivating to see progress. Maybe I could measure the reading time (with stop watch) and write it to the pages and then calculate the average time to have a guess for the next reading session - how long will it take.

@Arbalest My last flat was ideal for reading. It was very silent place with only one roommate and the walls were thick.

@Kramii earplugs => ear pain due to pressure, white noise => not masking when silent, distracting others when loud, music => only little help, I haven't found which can be listened for long
