If you can find some of Asimov's books explaining various science topics, they are all pretty fun, even if they are getting a bit outdated.

Weinberg's _The First Three Minutes_ and Hawking's _Brief History of Time_ are good intros to cosmology. Sagan's _Cosmos_ (preferably the big hard cover, though expensive, and the vids if you can find them, also likely expensive) is a lot of fun.

I'm reading Hyperspace by Michio Kaku at the moment, I would highly recommend it.
