Try this:
StreamReader sr = new StreamReader("c:\\blob.txt");
 
            while (!sr.EndOfStream)
            {
                string line = sr.ReadLine();
            }

use the following code

using System.IO;

string[] data = File.ReadAllLines("path_to_file");
foreach (string s in data)
{
     StoreMyData(s);
}
