I know the attached hero does not attack, Can he quest without exhausting, Only defend or can he do both in the same turn?

From my understanding, the Hero can Quest without exausting himself, allowing to use him as a defender later if needed. (But he can't be used to attack).
Until now, i've always attached the book of Mazarbul to Gimly, which can quest for +2 and absorbe some damages to reinforce his attack power.

Yes, the hero holding the Book of Mazarbul can commit to a quest without exhausting, leaving him (or her) available to defend or exhaust later in the turn. While toting the tome, though, the hero can never attack.

From my experience, characters like Bifur and Frodo Baggins make great Bookkeepers, as they are good at questing and defending but have poor attack values (meaning their attack won't be missed).

When running two Dwarf decks, I always throw the book on Dain. That way he can quest and contribute 2 extra willpower, while still boosting all the other characters since he is still in the ready position. Also, he's got a 3 shield, so he's a solid defender as well.

Gloin is also a good candidate, clearly the best if you don't play with Dain, IMO, and I still prefer it on Gloin if Dain is present, although the math works out pretty close on comparison anyway.
