Soaking beans overnight (Originally posted on General Topics)

Recipes for beans always tell me to soak beans overnight. Am I seriously supposed to put the beans in the water at midnight, before I go to bed and leave them there until I'm ready to cook dinner the next night at 6 or 7 or 8? I know that's not right. Do they really mean soak the beans for about 8 hours? 10? 12? Why the overnight instruction?

Oh help! How long to soak dried beans?
