a descriptive term for someone who is, or appears
to be, heavily influenced by literature or the act and habit of reading books in general. prone to embracing an East Coast style, wearing understated
yet unique clothing, drinking
tea, embracing the introspective nature
of winter, and loving Andrew Bird
and movies about offbeat
human relationships. "lit" is often confused with "hipster" and "indie," but is more of a persuasion than an actual
quantifiable stereotype or scene.
I saw Peter dissapear into a free-trade coffee shop looking so dapper in those wingtip shoes and that red sweater. he was carrying a white paperback.. it may have been
Franny and Zooey, but it could have been
any other Salinger
novel. I walked
in and told him he looked
especially lit today, to which
he replied, "does that mean you think I am high?"
