comment The Use of the Present Perfect. What is natural?
"What have you meant?" is not wrong on its own. It's wrong in the situation you described. check this out google.com/…

"I've just cooked dinner. and I've just sent you the letter." - Both are in the Present Perfect. No difference in terms of tenses.

Have you meant...? without JUST refers to a recent past. "Did you mean" implies the specific situation in the past. I think "Have you JUST meant" is acceptable.

comment Is it possible to construct a sentence with “There is any”
I am sorry. Are you saying that "There is any book you like on the table." or "There is any book you could want on the table." is OK?

Whose answer do you mean I could read? Yours or the ones in the related thread? Did I make a comment on what and where? Sorry, I can't get what you mean.

Take heed, in the discussion you have brought up, they don't study it in terms of "there is". There is a difference.

comment when my son sleeps VERSUS while my son sleeps
The worrying thing for me is that some natives speakers in another forum consider 1 very clumsy and unacceptable. At least they say this "it makes it sound as though your son's falling asleep triggers some sort of conditioned reflex by which you compulsively pick up a book the instant he falls asleep.;) I don't think you're trying to describe a psychological problem ... or are you?"

comment Habitual activities within a limited period of time
Your assumption "The writer is describing his / her habitual activities during the college break" is totally wrong. These actions don't occur every year, hence, they are not habitual. If your answer had been full then I wouldn't have asked for elaboration. Now I see I was asking too much. Good luck.
