Synthetic biology seems like a pretty exciting area of study to me. Maybe get a copy of "The Machinery of Life", or "Regenesis".

The Machinery of Life [1] is a fantastic book, I was one of those curious laymen and boy did it saturate my thirst for learning about microbiology. I think it's close to the time I read it again.
