Drag it into your solution. Set the properties BuildAction=Content and Copy to Output Directory=Copy always. Then you can simply read it by e.g.
static void Main(string[] args)
{
  XDocument document = XDocument.Load(@"MyDocument.xml");            
  Console.ReadLine();
}

Are you trying to read .xml files added to project, or files with .proj extension?
