"Than me" is wrong. This is because the complete thought is understood to be incomplete at the end. the full sentence should be "He has double the books than I (have)". but my question is why it would be "that I". that doesn't make sense to me

I don't think "than" is the correct term here. It's usually only used for comparatives such as "more than," "less than," or "better than." Instead, "as" should be used.
