Help finding the work done given 3 different distances?

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

a student lifts a book of 0.95 N to a height of 1.25 m. Then the student carries the book to a shelf at a distance of 8.0 m and places it at a height of 2.0 m. How much work did the student realize over the book?

2. Relevant equations
W = Fd

3. The attempt at a solution

.95 N * 1.25 m + .95 N * 2.0 m + .95 N * 8.0 m = 1.2 + 1.9 + 7.6 = 10.7 J

Is this correct?
