How far are they going to take this? Jewelry? I guess they got to squeeze out as much as they can while it's popular. I liked the books but they are definitely not on my list of best books ever. I will, however, be in line to see the movie. Now you may commence to load the post with how awful the books were :)

Here are some examples: (thanks ColieO for the pic)

I couldn't finish it. She kept saying "oh my.." whenever she got turned on by Grey. I couldn't not read it in George Takei's voice. 

Such horrific writing. 

As for your original question. They will milk it for all it's worth.

LOL!  Merchandising, merchandising, merchandising - that's where all the money is made!

Oh and they WERE awfully written books, but I read all 3 of them.  The Crossfire series was significantly better.

I've tried reading it twice now and couldn't focus either time. Lol I guess it just wasn't captivating enough for me. What's the jewelry look like?

I had a problem with the repetitiveness and amateurish writing at first too but I made myself continue. I can't leave a book unfinished. And once I was done with book 1 I was intrigued enough to move onto book 2.
