When reading, almost nobody remembers *everything*. If you remember 80% of what you read, that's actually pretty damn good!
Having said that, there certainly do exist ways and techniques to improve your memory. Check out some of the books in this link:
A book I also like a lot is "Tony Buzan's Book of Genius", which is about all the things that genuis-level people have in common, and how many of these are attainable for anybody. It is his observation that, the more you learn, the more you also increase your capacity for learning. To get better means that you get better at getting better!
