Thanks, any chance you can fix the thing that breaks reader mode with the W. W. Norton books too?

This does not seem to work for Mcgraw Hill books, I modified it for anybody struggling with copy pasting from there. Here's a modified version.

javascript:(function(){
  allowCopyAndPaste = (e) => {
  e.stopImmediatePropagation();
  return true;
  };
  
  document.addEventListener('copy', allowCopyAndPaste, true);
  document.addEventListener('paste', allowCopyAndPaste, true);
  document.addEventListener('onpaste', allowCopyAndPaste, true);
  document.addEventListener('mousedown', allowCopyAndPaste, true);
  document.addEventListener('mouseup', allowCopyAndPaste, true);
  document.addEventListener('selectstart', allowCopyAndPaste, true);
  document.addEventListener('selectionchange', allowCopyAndPaste, true);
})();

You probably will have to refresh your page after copying as this can potentially break certain buttons and links.

I finally got a chance to test this with one of the W.W. Norton books, it doesn't seem to work.n When you highlight something it has a popup dialog that tries to hijack your clipboard.
