Is there a reason why every example of leaving out one part of the phrase "the reason why" chooses to leave out why instead of reason?

That is the reason why I like reading novels.
That is the reason I like reading novels.
That is why I like reading novels.

All three usages seem to have the same meaning, yet every example so far of dropping one portion has dropped the why rather than the reason.
