So is "bøkene dine" more common than "dine bøker?"

yes. "jeg har dine bøker" would put an emphasis on your in "I have your books" (as opposed to "I have her books")

Why not ditt? What is the difference?

The possessive needs to agree with the gender and number of the noun:

di (f, sl.)
ditt (n, sl.)
din (m/f, sl.)

dine (m/f/n, pl.)

I did too. The first time I put "burkene" just to be guessing what they said because I could not think of a word that sounded like that. A lot of the words sound messed up coming from a computer.

I heard "bøkene". You must have heard the R from "har"
