Both/and vs Either/or

Look at the sentences below:

Both John and Lucy are my friend
Either John or Lucy is my friend

Both/and and Either/or have the same meaning, but only different in the subject of the sentence. Both/and means the two subject (in the sentence above between John and Lucy) do the same thing. While Either/or means that whether John or Lucy is my friend, John is my friend or Lucy is my friend. Still confused?

Look at the examples below:

You may buy both book and pencil. (you may buy the two items, book and pencil)
You may buy either book or pencil. (you may choose one of the items, book or pencil)
