You need to read them in order. Or serialize a List and then you can access by index
import java.io.*;
public class WriteRead {
    public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception {
	ObjectOutputStream oos = new ObjectOutputStream(new FileOutputStream("x.ser"));
	for(int i = 0;i < 5;i++) {	
	    oos.writeObject("" + i);
	}
	oos.close();
	ObjectInputStream ois = new ObjectInputStream(new FileInputStream("x.ser"));
	for(int i = 0;i < 5;i++) {	
	    System.out.println(ois.readObject());
	}
	ois.close();
    }
}

add them to a ArrayList (or array) and then serialize/deserialize the list/array
that will handle reading/writing all objects in one call
