If reading physical books weren't so uncomfortable for me now, I'd read the series.
Have you tried reading on a tablet or Kindle? They can be considerably easier to hold than a physical book and can even be put on a stand.
As for audio books: I've only used them in a car or on a plane, but my wife has started to listen to them while walking.
We have a good story from when we brought the kids (then 6-12) to Disneyworld 15 years ago. We were on the drive back - 22 hours spread over 2 days. We'd left Orlando at 6AM and were on the way to our hotel in VA. By mid afternoon we were 7 hours into an audiobook that we were all listening to out loud. We told the kids we'd be at the hotel in an hour... but there was still 3 hours left in the audiobook. The kids all said they didn't want to stop yet, as they needed
to hear the rest of the story. So we called the hotel chain and moved to a hotel 60 miles further away, as we really didn't think they kids could hold out for 3 more hours. We were wrong; an hour later we called the hotel again and moved to a even further hotel, in MD. Just before we got to the hotel the audiobook finished, and we started the next day one state closer to home.
(IIRC, the audiobook was Hatchet
