Put Your Books in Your Mouth

Put your books in your mouth.
My grandma struggled to learn Czech while living in Czech Republic with my grandpa who already spoke Czech. One day she was feeling particularly confident and held out a book to an acquaintance.

"Budeš jíst to?" she asked. She received a funny look.  

What she should have asked? "Budete si to?" She'd originally asked, "Will you eat this?" instead of "Will you read this?"
