Although the verbs 'contredire' and 'lire' might look to be similar in the present tense, when you get to the passé composé they will differ as the past participle of 'dire' and all its derivatives like 'contredire', ends in 'it' , however the past participle of 'lire' is 'lu' so they could not be put together .
Hope this helps!
Yes, that could be helpful. Also, it is interesting that contredire and dire differ in 2nd person plural present tense:
vous contredisez vs. vous dites
