How are you setting up the office?
Also, what job are you giving him?

Did you create an office though? You may have assigned something else. Also, I thought book keepers had to be able to go around and count fortress stock or is it that they just need an office?

Nope.  They use their Extra Beardy Perception to discover where every item is located, without ever leaving their chair.  Or at least that's how it was in v0.34 and earlier.

If the bookkeeper needs a traversible path from his office to each item now, I'll be rather surprised.

Drop some magma on him and set up a different dwarf to be your new bookkeeper. See if that makes a difference.
