I would suggest that you Index until you finish that book and go to Fool School. Try the Index message board after Fool School.
The fact that you are asking other people whether you should buy more of those stocks make me wonder what analysis you did when you originally bought them. You literally have all your eggs in two baskets. IMHO, irrespective of the companies you choose, having all your money in two stocks is not a good investment strategy. While you could "hit a home run" and have astronomical returns, the downside is severe.

"Q: Is it better to buy a few shares at higher prices/share or a lot of shares of lower priced stocks?"

>>>It doesn't matter.

Good luck.
