With the cuts to scrolls, the only thing Lecturns and Bookshelves drop now are the occasional health potion. Either make far less lootable bookshelves or itemize the damn things.
With that said, Scrolls of Companion were a wasted inventory slot. I don't know about the other Scroll, never saw it. Gold is picked up when you run over it, and as already mentioned, there is a "increase gold/globe pickup radius" stat on gear. The companion scroll isn't missed, and only encouraged racing when playing coop.
Ignore the cynical asses.
