[Scribus] Not sure if I NEED Scribus. . .

Yes it's me, the beginner again.  I'm contemplating all this work I have to
do that's not even related to laying out the book.  From what I gather so
far, in order to create a book with Scribus, it's just putting text and
images into frames, page by page, is this correct?  For the printer I am
going to use, I've just been supplying them PDF files created with
Wordperfect (just text) for other simple books I already have and they turn
out just great.  My thought for going to a true DTP program was only with
regard to the images.  My book layout is simple.  It's just text from left
to right, no columns or tables or any weird layout things.  Below the text
will be an image of some music notation.  Then below that, more text, all
the way through the book.

Could I just use something like Open Office Writer or Word or Wordperfect to
to layout this simple book? The question is, which of these programs has the
best import features for graphics such as EPS or PNG perhaps?
