A "book" can mean many things, but you can create continuous pagination
even with separate files for each chapter. When creating a new document,
you can specify the beginning page number,as well as auto numbering the
pages in the page templates. Page templates work much like master pages
in PageMaker.

Automatic tables of contents is not yet in Scribus, but it is something
that is in development via scripting. If it is a necessity, I am pretty
sure Open Office has that.
