- Newton's Third Law

This problem is from MIT's module again.

I have a doubt about Newton's Third Law. How is the normal and weight of the book not Newton's 3rd Law pairs?

When the book is placed on the table, I imagine that the book's weight exerts a force on the table and the table exerts and equal and opposite force of the same magnitude and opposite direction. This force is called the normal force.
