    off the floor

    My book fell down off the table to the floor. So I picked up my book off the floor.

    Please see if I have correctly used the preposition "off" in the above sentences.

    Re: off the floor

    My suggestion:

    My book fell off the table & onto the floor. So I picked up my book from the floor.
