Consider the possibility someone stamped a book without doing the work. Sure sounds like it's losing oil but there are types of leaks that only occur when the engine is running so it's possible the oil is leaking but you don't see a puddle under the car.

Until a pro does a proper consumption test and inspection there is no practicality in speculating how the oil is being lost.
