This is a one page worksheet. It works well for upper-intermediate student. I usually warm up my class by asking intro questions such Do you enjoy reading books? Have you tried reading books in a foreign language before? What is your favorite book? Why? Do you think that only children should read stories? Why? Why not? and so on. It would be the best to discuss difficult words such as pseudonym, peculiar etc to prepare students before they start to read the article.
