Pipe Keeping Track of Events in the Silmarillion?

I'm trying to read it for the third time, and I'm having a lot of trouble keeping everything straight in my head. Especially the parts where chapters get retold differently--all the different versions kind of blend together, and then it makes no sense at all.

I was taking notes the first time around, but even as I was writing them out I wasn't really convinced that they were helping. Then, of course, I lost them.

Anyway, my question is: how do you keep track of everything? I've seen a few discussions on here from people who seem to have learnt it by heart--how??

Any tips appreciated! I enjoy reading it but I feel like 95% of it flies over my head and what does makes sense I immediately forget, no matter how many times I reread a passage.
