Is this sentence correct? "She didn't have any book with her."


It’s grammatical and used, in the words of the Oxford English Dictionary’s definition 1b, to mean ‘None at all; none of any kind, quantity, or number, even the minutest; not even one’.

It needs to be used in this way with care, as it will not be appropriate in all contexts.
