I'm not so certain...

Would Ori be carrying the Book of Mazarbul at the time of the Hobbit? I always had the impression that that book was specifically about the recolonization of Moria (Gandalf says that "It seems to be a record of the fortunes of Balin's folk"), and if so, why would Ori carry around an empty book during the Hobbit that he never writes in?

My guess is that the book will serve a similar purpose as the Book of Mazarbul; To keep a record on the quest that they are currently undertaking. It's meta-purpose will also be to establish a link between Ori and the Book of Mazarbul, make people go "oh, he's a book-worm, could he have been the one who wrote the Book we see in Moria during the Trilogy?"

As for a Moria-segment during an epilogue, I would love to see. Do we know how much of an epilogue/bridge to the Trilogy there will be, if any?
