How to serialize and de-serialize simple objects part 2

Refining the previous example to include reading from a file, displaying to the console, serializing and de-serializing the objects. This program must showcase the usage of streamreader,streamwriter,binaryformatter,filestream etc

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;
using System.IO;
using System.Runtime.Serialization;
using System.Runtime.Serialization.Formatters.Binary;

namespace serilizationexample

class Program

static void Main(string[] args)
Console.WriteLine("Please enter the text to write to the file");
string s1 = Console.ReadLine();

FileStream fs = new FileStream(@"C:\Test.Sam", FileMode.Create);
BinaryFormatter bf = new BinaryFormatter();
bf.Serialize(fs, s1);
Console.WriteLine("Successfully wrote text to file press any key to Read the text from the file");
// Console.ReadKey();

FileStream fs2 = new FileStream(@"C:\Test.Sam", FileMode.Open);
BinaryFormatter bf2 = new BinaryFormatter();
string s2 = (string)bf2.Deserialize(fs2);
StreamReader sr = new StreamReader(@"C:\Test.Sam");
string TextEntered = "";
string temp = "";
if ((temp = sr.ReadLine()) != null)
TextEntered = temp + sr.ReadLine();

Console.WriteLine("Reading the contents of the file ...Press any key");
Console.WriteLine("Deselerializing the contents from the file...");
