Is it okay, if we don't use it at the end? Just curious.

This book is the perfect companion for those who need inspiration in a quick read and have fun while reading [it].


...and have fun while reading.

uses "fun while reading" in a general sense (you have fun/enjoy reading in general), not only "This book".

...and have fun while reading it.

is specific about "fun while reading" this book. Regarding other books we have no idea.

  • Wow. That's a great explanation. Appreciate. I'm going with it. Thank you. – Roy Jul 8 '15 at 18:59
  • You never know when you might want someone to be miserable reading some other book, after all. – Crazy Eyes Jul 8 '15 at 19:21
  • @CrazyEyes But some people (like me) have a difficult time reading. Unless it is something of specific interest, reading is not fun, at all. – user3169 Jul 8 '15 at 19:29
  • @user3169 Most people don't like reading things they have no interest in. I was just joking, pointing out the silly idea that you might want someone to enjoy one book, but not any others. – Crazy Eyes Jul 8 '15 at 19:31

In your particular case? Yeah, that's totally fine grammatically. Personally, I even think that it sounds a bit better. It's worth noting that in some situations, it is needed:

"I like [it]!"

"Don't hit the infinite probability drive, you'll break [it]!"

"A lad's night out? I don't think we're up for [it]."

  • Thank you @HarryCBurn for the helpful explanation. Yeah, it sounds a bit better. I felt the same and was curious. – Roy Jul 8 '15 at 18:58
