Are you a Hampster? If so, there's a section at BookHampton just for you. A hampster is a "Hamptons Hipster" and, according to Kim Lombardini, the marketing manager of BookHampton and co-curator of the Hipster Lit shelf (pictured), a hampster is someone who likes to "go surfing, they spend time in the sun, they go out in Montauk in the evening. During the day they spend time in the un-Hamptons...It's kids who are home from college who go to Wesleyan or whatever, it's locals, it's summer workers...A lot of them come in on Fridays on the Hipster Jitney." Now there's a hipster Jitney? God, we're getting old. [The Village Voice]
