Your method was as good as any, but I'm lazy, so I think I would have
left the target chapter files alone, added them to the destination
book, and just changed the numbering properties of the book so they
appeared to be a single chapter.

I don't know if it applies to your situation, but that would have left
both books intact, so that changes to the original source book would
ripple into the destination book too.

You could also have skipped Step 3 in your procedure, too, again so
the source files could stand alone.
