A cooperator wrote Indian person who holds a PhD in English.

Apparently it's the way they write stylish English in India. It's like the 'Dutch' of more than a century ago evolved to Afrikaans. With few effort we can understand when spoken or written.

I think you should say:

I do not have either a book or a pen

But you could also avoid either and say

I have zero books and the same amount of pens
