How long does a book stay at the PO if it is not picked up?  A book I sent on January 23rd is lost in limbo somewhere.  According to my USPS DC they attempted to deliver it on February 1st and a notice was left.  I pm'd the person and they checked the PO and the book is not there.  Is there anyway to tell where it is?  Would they scan it if it is on its way back to me??

I'm not positive but i think they hold it at the P.O. for 10 days, if the customer does not pick it up , it is sent back.
