    NOT A TEACHER


    Not really.


    I've got a book would be somewhat more common in Brititsh English.
    The same is with the interrogative form: Have you got/Do you have(AmE)

    Sometimes people also say: I got a book (for short)

    "I've got ..." adds emphasis to the simple possession, "I have ...".

    I've got you under my skin.

    I've got a doozy of a cold.

    I've got the world's longest tongue.

    I've got measles.

    I've got lots of money.
