This term is used by a category of people who have the best interest at heart but are terribly pretentious. They usually like to use it to show you how much they love to read. These people also like to say that they enjoy Fall, because it is perfect "sweater weather" and they can curl up on the couch and read whilst drinking herbal tea. Favorite movies of this category include "Rent" and "Across the Universe." Favorite music includes light alternative rock and classical. These people can sometimes be mistaken for "hipsters", but they are not because they neither smoke nor drink. You can often spot these people at museums of modern art quietly discussing the deeper meaning of a hammer glued to a toilet with pink water. These people also enjoy having deep conversations, which help them to show off their vast knowledge. They also love Jane Austen novels. These people are usually females who are often mistaken for lesbians due to their disinterest in sexual relationships until age 30. These people dream of attending college in Cambridge or Oxford due to their lifelong love of anything English.

Lucy: I just LOVE the smell of old books! Don't you?
Jim: Indeed. Wonderful sweater-weather by the way, isn't it?
Lucy: Yes, it is. I REALLY feel like some Chai tea.
Jim: Yes, sounds lovely.
