You have to put away whatever the flight attendant tells you to put away. It's not worth arguing with the FA, you're not going to win.

Not all books are created equal so just saying "it's a book" doesn't mean its safe. Maybe it was a giant, heavy, hardcover book and a tiny little old lady with frail arms? It'd hurt just as much as a laptop. And clearly multiple FA's have concerns about the bulkhead magazines holders ability to stop heavy object from coming loose during take-off and landing
