    I've been reading the book - I think this is present continuous?
    It's the present perfect continuous (aka present perfect progressive)
    I've read the book - I think this is present past
    It's the present perfect (or present perfect simple to distinguish it from the form above)
    Also, there are three articles in the sentence- the/a/an
