Can I claim my college text book expenses that I pay for even though my parents claim me on their taxes and record my 1098-T on their taxes? Do I enter any college info?

Your parents should add those expenses on their return. It may make their credit larger. As a dependent, you can't get any credit for the education expenses (books) on your return.
