Add paragraph style to all files in a book

I have to add a paragraph style to all the chapters in a book, and I'm wondering if there's a way to do this as a batch rather than "Load paragraph styles" chapter by chapter.

 

Any ideas?

Hi Susan. It sounds like you have an InDesign file for each chapter of your book. Are you using the Book feature (File > New > Book) within InDesign to bring all of these files together into your final book? This method allows you to set a document as the Style Source. Pressing the Synchronize button then copies and adds styles across all of the other files.
