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?"
