5.3 - The Lion King
The Lion King musical was based on the 1994 Disney animated film of the same name. The role of Nala was expanded in the musical, and in Swahili the meaning of the name Nala is Gift.

These are gifts:

a gift card or voucher to a book store or online book vendor and you used it to choose a book

someone gave (not loaned) you a used or vintage book

a gift of a book subscription service for x length of time/uses

No
"NetGalley delivers digital galleys, often called advance reading copies, or ARCs, to professional readers and helps promote new and upcoming titles. "
This serves a commercial purpose.

If you need to return it, even without a deadline, it is not a gift.

Trish (trishhartuk) | 2696 comments I'm currently trying to find homes for the various Hugo nominees. Does a book provided as part of the Hugo voter pack count as a gift?

If the voter's pack is a perquisite of a paid membership it is not a gift. Do you have more info on how you got the pack?

Trish (trishhartuk) | 2696 comments That answers the question!

If everyone at the conference received the book as part of a paid registration/membership then it isn't a gift.

Nicole | 1314 comments No it was just me- as a prize for answering a lot of questions in a session.
