Reading books during Chinese New Year days

One of the superstitious beliefs in the past was that reading or / and buying books during the 15 -day Chinese New Year celeberation would cause or lead one to lose fortunes because of the pronunciation shu is the same for "book" as well as "loss". But, in the mainstream Chinese community today, many people not only read but also purchase books to improve themselves intellectually and culturally for a better future. Chinese New Year celebrates fine traditions and progressive changes.
