No, but hosting a site that gets nearly 2 million hits a month isn’t free, so we’ve added a way for our loyal readers to help us out. ;-) The next time you buy LEGO from the LEGO Store online, please consider clicking through from Brothers-Brick.com first. If you do that, we get a (very small) percentage of the sale, which will help to cover costs like Web hosting.
