Are novels still relevant today?

I agree with you. Nowadays internet and TV influence us more than books. Reading books is considered as a boring activity. It does to me as well even a novel is a novel. No internet or TV can change the feeling of reading it. And of course those novels change me in some way. Influences my philosophy and way of thinking.

Novels are definitely still relevant today and will stay so for a long time I think. They can be a form of entertainment, but they also do many other things for example informing the reader about something, provoking thoughts, and imagination. Novelists do still change the world. Its just not on as grand a scale as they used to be. Look at what Harry Potter has done to the world at large. It's not only childrens books but also one that many adults love. Its inspired so many other young adults series going mainstream and getting movie deals etc.
