1. I have seen the book you were reading.
2. I saw the book you were reading.
(What is thedifference between them?)

Actually, there's very little difference between these two sentences.
This site explains the past perfect tense you used in the first sentence.

Ms.Sue, did you not mean the present perfect tense?
Wouldn't the past perfect tense be:
"I had seen the book you were reading"?
