    In this use, "just" is a synonym for "simply" or "merely," suggesting the act had little significance.

    "Walk over here" means literally to walk to a place the writer is calling "here," assuming you understand where it is (the place where the book is, probably).

    So it could have been written as, I simply walk to the place the book is and pick it up.
