You can use kill commands in read-only buffers. They don't actually
change the buffer, and they beep to warn you of that, but they do copy
the text you tried to kill into the kill ring, so you can yank it into
other buffers. Most of the kill commands move point across the text
they copy in this way, so that successive kill commands build up a
single kill ring entry as usual.
