Between the mini-USB port and the power button on the Paperwhite bottom, is a tiny hole. Is that a reset hole, a cooling vent, or something else? Just curious.

Definitely not a reset hole.  No idea really.  Never noticed it before.

No, I've never noticed it before either - I don't recall it being mentioned in any of the support literature. Can't imagine what - if anything - it could be for.  ???

My guess is it's just an artifact of manufacturing. . . . .

It's a hole for the water to drain out.

But seriously, if the PW has a microphone, might that be where it is? I don;t have a PW, so can't say with any authority.

Are you talking about a little hole that looks like a 1/8" slit?  If so, that is the charging light.  When your PW is charging, it should be amber and when it is fully charged it turns green.

For the love of .... well, duh! Of COURSE it's the charging light. How on earth did we not realise that? :-[

Thank you, Tripp, for saving us from our own idiocy!

OK, I just had to giggle when I saw this...if it makes you feel any better, I had to go get my PW and look at it first.
