    I'd have to say both. I've read a lot of very informative hubs, but if they don't grab me, I won't read them.

    Mostly entertainment but sometimes I find a nugget of information or peal of wisdom that I am grateful for.

    Both. I have learned a lot from reading hubs. In fact, when I want to learn how to do something, I come here first. Most of the hubs are fairly well researched, so I am usually satisfied with the information I find. I also read for entertainment. HubPages has a long list of fun-filled, entertaining hubbers and when I need a good laugh, or when I need my spirit lifted, or when I just want to know what the latest news is in Hollywood, I come to HubPages. I can find anything here. It's quite enjoyable.

    Definitely for both! I think there is such a wide range of topics that are all covered, there really is no need for anything else on the Internet.

    Ideas create ideas. Sometimes I find a new world at HubPages and try to explore it and make Hubs out of questions.

    I read hubs for both reasons. There is a lot on good information in some hubs and I also like to sometimes read ones that give a persons personal experience of something such as a medical condition. I have read things on hubs and then been inspired to go on and read up more.
