    Yep, focused.

    I was going to say disciplined - as in self-disciplined - but focused is better.

    It varies on your intention. Are you:
    1) describing yourself?
    2) describing a friend?
    3) describing someone you don't like?
    4) describing someone that you would like to make sexy time with?

    How about: "He/She has an aptitude for reading difficult and dense books, like philosophical tomes."

    Yes, often expressed as "gifted". :)

    Either that, or an Idiot Savant.

    Sometimes the lines are blurred. ;)
