Thank you, that helps some. But do you know how to use each one? What also confuses me is under what circumstances would I use each one? - sadeg, DIC 21, 2009

I have had the book. (present perfect) I had the book. (perfect or preterito) I was having/used to have/had the book. (imperfect)

I think this is correct. Please anyone correct me if i am wrong!!
