I see that you can order a book with a feature that lets you stop reading a book and switch to audio reading of the book where you are currently at. Does paperwhite reader have that function to support ear phones or ear bud listenint to a talking book?

You don't have to listen and read on the same device. You can listen on an iPod Touch, phone or anything that has the Audible app and then sync and have the Kindle pick up where you left off listening.

I just recently read a book that way.. Listened to some of it on my android tablet while at work using the Audible app, and then picked up reading the text with my Kindle Keyboard at home. Pretty seamless switching between audio & text and the two different devices.

If you had taken the time to read the product page you'd see that no it doesn't. Speakers and text to speech have been removed from the Paperwhite.

The PW1, and PW2, do not have audio capabilities. Perhaps the PW3 will...or perhaps not. Studying the product pages is a good way to learn what a device has/lacks, and how it compares to other devices in the Kindle line. The DX has audio capability, but is a discontinued item they are selling again, so they must have found a bunch in a warehouse, or something. The 3G+ Wi-Fi (3G, Keyboard) had audio capability, as did the Touch, but both are now discontinued, and generally unavailable. To get audio from current Kindles, you need to buy one of the Fire models. If you wait awhile, until the PaperWhite 3 is out, you might find that it has audio...or you might not. Time will tell. Rumors say the PW3 will be out this Spring, but that is just rumor, and may be true, or not. If it does not come out this Spring, the PW3 should be out by this time for Christmas sales/delivery in the winter. How long can you wait? If in a hurry, buy a Fire now. The 7 inch HDX is a good item. If you can wait a bit, see what the new PW3 has when it comes out.

Still plenty of 3G KK's around in Australia, both at Big W and Officeworks. The OP doesn't have his country showing, so I mention it just in case.
