Is it ok to send them a message asking them to confirm their receipt or what do you do?
Thanks:)!

If it's been that long, then I don't see a problem contacting the requestor.  I had one of these last year, and the receiver had merely been busy and forgot to log the book as received.  There could be other issues (maybe po delivered incorrectly), and enough time has lapsed that a pm contact is the next logical step.

PM them.  I know I order books that I have sent to an alternative address.  My Mom is very good at telling me books have arrived safely.  But my niece, the first grade teacher, never lets me know.  (Of course, her only internet access is in the principal's office. )

Yeah I think at that point it is safe to PM.  I don't PM people when there's still quite a bit of time left before a book goes lost.  I don't like getting PMs a week or two after a book was mailed askign me if I have gotten it yet.  But I think at this point you are OK to ask w/o sounding pushy. 

Please keep in mind that DC isn't always correct. I have a lost book that shows it was delivered to me on 1/8 but I have not seen this book.  I don't know where they left it but it wasn't at my house and it's not at my PO anymore.
