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.

  • You never know when you might want someone to be miserable reading some other book, after all.

  • @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 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.

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]."
