Buddy reading means: reading the same book with your buddy at the same time, together.

To achieve this reading experience you’ll have to follow some ground rules, so here they are:

1. Try not to read a book with more than one person at a time, especially if you’re buddy reading for the first time, or else the whole story might get messed up and you might end up getting into unexpected spoilers.

 

2. When starting a book, set a chapter where both of you will stop reading at the same time. Make sure that both of you don’t go any further without talking and discussing about the previous chapters together.

 

3. Don’t set the chapters of your chosen book too far from each other before having another discussion, for example; if you’re in chapter 5; tell each other to stop at chapter 8 or 10 - depending on the length of every chapter.

 

4. Choose a book that you’ll both want to read.

 

5. If your reading paces are different, choose another book for yourself that only you will read while you wait for your friend to finish the required chapter. In that way you’ll not want to keep reading a few more chapters after finishing the decided chapter of the chosen book.

 

6. Don’t discuss about the other book while reading the chosen book with your buddy. Because – why on earth would you do that? Don’t talk about it until you’re done with the chosen book.

That's one way of looking at it. In the book group I've been in for some time, a buddy request doesn't get motioned until at least 3 people commit to it. The thinking behind it is that it will go on even if one person ditches the buddy read.

well then I guess that once you commit you should remain committed

That works. At least there are not many chunky YA books.
