Bilbo is responsible for leaving the One Ring for Frodo, who subsequently became hunted by the Nazgûl, Saruman, Sauron, and even Boromir in a way. Yet in the Peter Jackson film Fellowship of the Ring, we come across Bilbo in Rivendell kind of just hanging out -- he gives Frodo all his weaponry and armour, tells Frodo he is sorry he brought Frodo into the whole One Ring mess, and then basically bids Frodo adieu and watches as Frodo sets off on the Fellowship of the Ring quest.
Almost all races are involved in the war to destroy the Ring. But what does Bilbo do during the quest of the Fellowship? Does he simply remain in Rivendell and work on his memoir? Is there any information regarding Bilbo and what he did while the quest of the Fellowship of the Ring was ongoing? What did he do during the time the One Ring was being taken to Mt. Doom?
ETA: The usual caveat. I've read The Fellowship of the Ring and The Two Towers, but have not read The Silmarillion or The Return of the King. I've seen Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings Trilogy many times. I just got The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey on BD this past Tuesday, so I'm pretty unfamiliar with it still. I.e. I'm not a Tolkien scholar, so please pardon me if this is an obvious question to those in the know.
