Since I have not been consistent with posts about music I've acquired this year, I thought a "Best of..." list would be a good way to catch up.
A quick review of the places from where my music comes:
2) Free downloads (mostly through Peel from mp3 blogs; sometimes elsewhere)
3) In-store purchases
4) iTunes Music Store (when I get a gift card)
5) Gifts from friends and family
