J.K.Rowling & the Deathly Hallows

Let me make something clear at the very beginning. I am a big Harry Potter fan. And like many others I am also eagerly awaiting the release of the last book in the series. While searching about the new book, came across anews item which said that J.K.Rowling finished the series in a posh Scottish hotel. To commemorate this she scribbled on a marble bust in her hotel room the following line.
"JK Rowling finished writing Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows in this room (652) on 11th Jan 2007"
For someone who started off writing in a cafe as she could not afford heating in her home to becoming one of the richest women in the whole world, she's come a long way. And now she can easily get away with what can only be described as vandalism of hotel property. I guess this is one of the perks of being a highly successful author. But then why should i mind. After all she has given Harry Potter to the world.
