Hinduism and Buddhism are not best described as religions. Hinduism itself is a Middle Eastern (I prefer the term Muslims but it's less politically correct) to denote the "foreignness" of Indian culture which was then adopted as a term by Europeans to group together what they saw as religion in India, but historically we would not group together the various bits into one construct such as "Hinduism".

Hinduism is I believe by nature similar to Chinese folk religion(s). It's a culture with ancient myths of their world as the basis.

Just because it's mostly an oral tradition doesn't really make the two that different. But if you insist, there's Daoism which has a definite book.

That's the difficult thing about studying religion so many variations, school of thoughts and traditions.

You could debate whether it's really scriptures or not. I don't think any of the "sects" of Hinduism regard any of the 'scriptures' as being a holy book or as a set of rules. I think of them as Aseops fables actually.
