Do both these sentences make sense, and do they mean the same:



a) "One of the reasons why I like reading is because it makes me feel aloof from the reality."


b) "One of the reasons why I like reading is because it makes me feel oblivious to the reality."

Do both these sentences make sense, and do they mean the same:

Some people don't approve of the sentence structure one of the reasons why . . . is because . . . .They prefer one of the reasons why . . . is that . . . .

a) "One of the reasons why I like reading is because it makes me feel aloof from the reality."

I wouldn't use aloof here. A common meaning of aloof involves feeling superior. eg The Queen was aloof to her servant.


b) "One of the reasons why I like reading is because it makes me feel oblivious to the reality. This is OK.

Christine ChristieOne of the reasons why I like reading is because it makes me feel oblivious to the reality.

This one is the better of the two. 'aloof' doesn't fit.

Here's my version for your comparison.

One of the reasons I like reading is that it makes me feel removed from reality.

People say it, but try to avoid ... reason is because ....
reason why is not wrong, but why is usually unnecessary, as in this example.
