    I read a few about relativity
    Try:
    The elegant universe by brian greene
    The goldilocks enigma by paul davies
    A very short introduction to thermodynamics by peter atkins
    A very short introduction to materials by christopher hall
    The fabric of the cosmos by brian greene
    QED by richard feynman
    A brief history of space and time by stephen hawking (I haven't actually read that one)

    Try and find a topic you're particularly interested in, and read about that. It is a lot easier to read 200 pages of something you're enthralled by than something you're just reading for the sake of it. Also, if you mention it in your PS, I'm sure a niche (sp?) book will look a lot better than one of those books EVERYONE has read (i.e. A brief(er) history of time).

    Yeah A Brief History of Time by Stephen Hawking is a brilliant book, so interesting and introduces everything from black holes, quantum mechanics, and relativity, to string theory.

    Six Easy Pieces is such a good book and really easy to understand
