Earthquakes by William B. Rice
This book is quite informative and has information on what causes an earthquakes, plate movement, what happens during earthquakes, seiche, the Richter Scale, and the San Andreas Fault. It is set out in small chapters and has a glossary and an index. There is a diagram of the earth showing its makeup, useful maps showing the earthquake zones and major plates, as well as photos of actual damage caused by earthquakes. It's a good introductory book to this topic.
