In this sentence, how can I know it is "the" book and not "a" book?

But it is a book. "He is reading the book" would be: הוא קורא את הספר.

They are pretty close... What languages are you familiar with (phonetics-wise?)

German is perfect as an example! Know the word "rauch"? The first consonant there is like the Hebrew 'ר', the last consonant is like the Hebrew 'ח'.
