You can move the point to the line _before_ the ERC prompt, so that
the point does not get moved, and you can continue reading from where
you stopped.

  C-p

Or, you can set the mark on the line _before_ the ERC prompt, 

  C-p M->

and you exchange the point and the mark when you want to jump back.

  C-x C-x

Or, you can kill the text you have read (you set the mark before the
ERC prompt, then you move the point to the top of the page, then you
kill the region, and you move the point back to the ERC prompt).

  C-p C-a C-SPC M-< C-w M->
