Pages can then be viewed side by side in Adobe Acroread.  As an option
in Acroread the first page can be made to display by itself on the right 
hand side and the remaining pages will be side by side with the even 
pages on the left side and the odd on the right, as in a book. 

To get the same effect in Scribus on the first spread the left hand side 
would need to be blank. This spacer page can be deleted just before 
exporting the PDF, or afterwards using Ghostscript or PSUtils. The 
spacer page is unnumbered of course.
