Your Bed: Headboard or No Headboard?

The bed that I sleep in currently has no headboard because I got rid of it a couple of years ago. Now, I have always preferred a headboard, and my reason for getting rid of mine escapes me. I used to really like the bookcase headboards because they offer lots of room to store the many items that I need to have close at hand. My last headboard, however was wicker and wrought iron-in keeping with my bedroom decor. Does your bed have a headboard or not? Which do you prefer? I am seriously thinking of buying a new headboard soon.
