I want to create a template for a book document class (not beamer) where the entire book is written in numbered frames. Below is an example from Kleppner and Ramsey's Quick Calculus showing Frames 25 and 26:

The closest answer I have found is by Yiannis Lazarides on https://tex.stackexchange.com/a/46593/234330. His full code is available on his Github page.

But as a LaTeX newbie, I do not know of an elegant and efficient way to create this as a template for an entire book. Any suggestions on how I can proceed or where I can read more about how to achieve this?

It's easy to build this frames with a tcolorbox:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[most]{tcolorbox}
\usepackage{lipsum}

\newcounter{framecounter}
\setcounter{framecounter}{0}

\newtcolorbox[use counter=framecounter]{myframe}{%
    empty, breakable, title={\thetcbcounter\ }, 
    attach boxed title to top left, left=0pt, right=0pt,
    boxed title style={empty}, coltitle=black, 
    overlay ={\draw (title.east)--(title.center-|frame.east);},
    after upper = {\par\hfill Go to \the\numexpr\theframecounter+1\relax}}

\begin{document}

\begin{myframe}
\lipsum[1]
\end{myframe}

\begin{myframe}
\lipsum[2]
\end{myframe}

\end{document}
