Books a popular gift for Maryland governor

Books -- about the War of 1812, the Chesapeake Bay and other topics -- were popular gifts to Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley last year, according to his financial disclosure forms. He received nearly 90 books during the year, The Baltimore Sun's political reporters found in checking the forms. And it's fitting for Maryland's key role in the War of 1812 that O'Malley received not one, but two copies of "1812: The Navy's War" by Georges Daughan.

Here's a photo gallery of the gifts, which includes these other books:

-- "Fight for the Bay" by Howard Ernst, from James J. Murran, CEO of MGM Resorts International, which hopes to build a casino in the state.

-- "The Whole Damn Deal" by Kathryn McGarr from Debbie Wasserman Schultz, chairwoman of the Democratic Governors Association.

-- "Smart on Crime" by Kamala Harris from none other than Kamala Harris, the Attorney General of California. Hope she got a discount. 

-- "Kazakhstan: Surprises and Stereotypes" by Jonathan Aitken from Erlan Idrissov, Ambassador of Kazakhstan,
