Brainteaser: Book on the Floor

Old Jay held up a Bathroom Reader and said, "I'll bet you I can place this book on the floor and none of you will be able to jump over it."

Brian replied, "I'll take your bet, but you're not allowed to put the book underneath anything like a desk or a chair."

Jay agreed to the terms. He placed the book on the floor -not under anything- and still won the bet. How?

Highlight below for the answer.

Old Jay placed the Bathroom Reader on the floor up against the wall in a corner of the room.
