 From what I understand, it sounds like each page is unique, in other 
words you don't continue linking to the next page, is that right?
If that's the case, you can make your text frames, then copy the page 
over and over. What you won't copy is any linking that was on the 
original, but linking is pretty easy. If you have to individually enter 
or load the text for each page anyway, that's not so much more work.
